Climbing reopened after flood MORE INFO >>>

Description 

Start by pulling through a broken area in the roof left of The Crab. Move up a V slot to a short roof with positive edge over the lip. Utilize the right-angling features on the slab above (crux) finishing just left of The Crab roof.


Location 

This area is maybe 100 yards above the boulder move on the standard Hawk Eagle Ridge approach. This route ascends first line left of the 5.6 corner route The Crab. Look for these routes after passing the steeper roof routes low on the ridge. The base shows slight wear from climber activity. Descend a class 4 gully 30 feet up the ridge line.


Protection 

Top rope.
