Sticky situation MORE INFO >>>

Description 

The most obvious natural route on the south face, well towards the west end of the rock. A discontinuous crack rises from the base to a bolted belay at about 120 feet. There are several cruxes, the first right off the deck. One can rappel from the belay anchors, or do a second pitch with a few tricky moves directly above the belay, leading to easier ground and the 'summit'. Descend/scramble westwards to get off.

Location 

See picture, west end of south face, obvious curving/discontinuous crack, with some bulges.

Protection 

rack to 3", bolted anchor top of first pitch. Rated 5.7 in Collins/White.
