Comments: Warmed up on the first pitch. There isn't much gear until after the crux. However I was able to wiggle in one of the smaller BD micronuts a little ways below the obvious wide spot in the thin crack. If you start on the far right, get to the good stance, and look around the corner, you can put in a blue TCU and extend it, then traverse left to the get to the sort of decent micronut placement. If you do slip at the crux and the nut comes out, you may just skim the ground instead of completely deck... more >>

Comments: This is a great route!
The climbing up to the bolt after the roof is relatively easily, but there isn't all that much gear.
Enjoy!

Comments: Amazing climb. You can rappel the route if there is no one below you instead of rappelling off to the right. There is a large tree up and left after you finish the second pitch with webbing and a quicklink. Two 60m rappels gets you to the ground.

Comments: Fantastic route!

The fixed line and pitons at the top for the descent is still in great condition. Thanks Marc!

Not to be rude to Robin, but the gear on P2 is not at all tricky. Super fun pitch! The moves off of the belay for P2 look tricky, but don't worry, they aren't that bad.

Comments: P.S.

To me, the approach descriptions sounds more like a sharp turn north rather than a gradual one. We did the approach in the dark and end up to the left of the descent gully. Think of the approach more like a rising traverse. or just do it when you can see [laughs].

Here are some coordinates that may be helpful. They are mapping coordinates that you have to put into google maps. when you do, click on the green arrow and select "What's here" to get proper GPS coordinates.

Comments: A few little bits of information I feel like sharing from my recent ascent that could prove useful for people.

1. Bring a GPS and make the road head for the way back. we ended up walking back in the dark and although I was able to take us right to the road, a GPS would have been nice for re-assurance.

2. On the first 5.7 section don't be tempted to go past the roof and continue up and to the right,(another party told me to do so) It ends up being a 5.7+/5.8 crack that dead ends at a rap ancho... more >>
