BETA PHOTO: The route.


This route starts in a large right-facing corner with thin hands. Climb thin hands to hands into a chimney (~60 ft). At the beginning of the chimney traverse left 10 ft on a good ledge and gaze up into the gaping offwidth that awaits you. Wedge yourself into the steeply overhung offwidth (crux) for some strenuous stacking. Fight your way up to killer twin hand jams. Follow twin cracks to the anchors.


50 yards left of Hand to Hand Combat in a large, right-facing corner in the middle of the buttress. Scramble up ~25 ft of class 3/4 to reach the corner. See photo on main page.


BD doubles of #1-#3, singles of new #4, old #4 and old #5 or new #6. Long sling for traverse. Two bolt anchor, rap the route. With a 70 meter rope you can rap down the class 3/4 rock below the route to the ground and avoid the down scramble.
