A nice steep face climb on the north face of Lava Dome. Really fun face climbing past 2 good bolts leads to easier face climbing past a seam up high. Good but short.


Just right of But Fear Itself. Descend by walking southeast about a minute down to packs.


Two well located 3/8 bolts protect the crux, some small cams, nuts and micro-nuts for the top seam. Tie-off blocks and flakes for belay or medium-big cams.

The first pro above the second bolt isn't inspiring, but the climbing eases after a move or two.
