Don't let the approach pillar or first 10 feet fool you, this is great rock all the way to the top. Remarkable underclings and large moves bring you from big hold to big hold. This is the longest pitch at The Palace, it has it all...even an easy crack to top out.


Right of "For the Kids", climb the broken pillar (20 feet) to gain the belay perch.


Bolts to a bolted anchor with chains - 100 feet. Then, climb a 15 foot splitter on hand-sized gear to second set of anchors with chains. A 60m rope will not make it from the top!

Easy 5.8. Done without any pro past the bolts originally.

Thanks, good to see some anchors to top out with and leaving the crack natural.
