Description:

Start at the obvious huge arete on the East end of the wall. Pitch 1 is a rope stretcher. Follow discontinuous cracks to a huge ledge to belay from slings on a large boulder. Pitch 2 goes up from the right of the belay, following a prominent crack and broken ledges. Belay from slings at the "cave." Pitch 3 is where the exposure gets really good. Leave the cave to the right, and climb another crack system the peters out, then follow double cracks to top.

Descent Options:

Walk off on obvious trail to the west. Downclimb broken rock back to car.

4 out of 5 stars Rope solo

Exposed variation rocks. Had a lot of fun, but also a bit of an epic -- was off route and therefore runout when the free end of my rope got stuck, had to rap on a so-so anchor, ended up with two stuck pieces of gear, descended in the dark, couldn't find the trail for a while, etc. Got down around 10 pm. Yeehaw! Welcome back to BCC.

4 out of 5 stars Get out on that corner

Fun climb on typical broken and ledgy BCC quartzite. Exposure on the awesome third pitch was incredible.
