This is a well-protected two pitch crack climb, that traverses left for a long ways as it moves up. The crux is a short offwidth near the end of pitch 1. It finishes on top of the rock - walk off to the right. This climb is in the shade most of the day.


gear to a #4 Camalot

I like this climb. The rock is of good quality, there are some good vistas from it and the climbing is entertaining, especially the offwidth on Pitch 1.

I found this route to be way fun. Bring a #5 or #6 if you want to feel "safe" for the 5.7 ow
