First pitch of Euphoria.

Description 

Four pitch route.
P1 5.7 Very long pitch. Try to make the belay past the small bush/tree.
P2 5.5R Climb shallow corner to face. Don't pass up protection opportunities especially on the lower part of the face (med cams).
P3 5.6 Great pitch. Run the rope out a full 200 feet if possible.
P4 5.6 Another long pitch.


Location 

Route is located on left side of huge arch. Look for three dihedrals next to each other on the left side of the big overhanging arch. Euphoria is the middle route. Rappel starting from tree to the climber's right to a two bolt rap station. Thence for another three full length rappels. Last rappel is located to the climber's right but viewable from rappel station, and, goes free air over the arch for a short bit. Two 60m ropes.


Protection 

Standard rack. No fixed gear on route.

This line was really great, it's in the shade all morning and not many people do this wall.

We did this with only one 70m rope and were going to walk off climbers-right using the slabs. Beware, that could have been deadly. When we finally realized the death potential, pulled out the GPS and used the backside of the head-wall to descend the creek valley. It was not only safe that way, but also an awesome hike back.
