Ladd pulling the last moves above the crux.


Beautiful route.
This route climbs the amazing looking corner under the roof. Very tenuous moves stemming in the corner with small gear and finger locks/laybacks just out of reach. This route has a beginning, middle(crux) and end.

Crux of this climb is moving off a thin layback pinching a high undercling and deadpointing up and left with no feet. Smearing high and bumping up and right to a pinch then leaving your now comfortable undercling to get a jug way up there. Throw in a hand-jam and remember to breathe before finishing the 5.8+ moves to the anchors.


Obvious corner under huge roof at trailhead.


1-3 inchers in the bottom section to small cams (blue-yellow aliens) through the crux. The upper section takes green aliens and protects well.

Bolted anchor.
