Description:

5.9+ R. Starts at the tree at the top of the first pitch of West Pole. Climb straight up the face between Thais face and West Pole to a good size ledge (same ledge as the top of West Pole). Climb a decent handcrack to a short right traverse, then thin crack move to thin face. The first pitch is runout.

5 out of 5 stars Bring on the fun

Yes, 1st pitch is great. There is a bit of loose rock and I had to run it out a bit on small gear, but the climbing there is no harder than 5.7. 2nd pitch was incredible!! Took a couple falls at the crux before I found the hidden hold - maybe I'll post the video. You can climb yourself into a jam if you can't find it and don't get suckered into the very thin seam on the right side at the crux. Anyway one of my most memorable leads.

0 out of 5 stars Ascent Note

Highly recommended. The first pitch is fun but runout. West Pole is a good alternate to get to the beautiful second pitch.
