This is the left of the two sport routes on the west side of the ridge. Climb past bolts to a right leaning crack. Clip more bolts and arch up and right to a chain anchor.


In the gulley on the west side of the ridge.

Very loose rock. Had an entire roof section key to the climb fall on both the climber and belayer.

Not sure where the rock fall was, but the route still goes at 5.10. I didn't notice any dangerous loose rocks either. About normal for the area. This felt a grade or two easier than Katchina to me. Around 5.10a.
