BETA PHOTO: One Hand Jam, two sets of chains here.


Bolted line to the left of the Perfect Crimb area. Mediocre route but an okay warmup or a good first lead. Starts on a hill and is awkward to belay for. Not very memorable, but hey, not every route can be 4 stars, then they would all be average!

Bolts. Please use your own gear for top rope. Please bring an extra biner and if the ones up top look bad or don't easily clip or shut, please replace it. It's good karma.

Are the new chains off to the left for this route? If so, kind of eliminates the need for the one hand jam.

The arete below the new chains is fun choss on top rope. The face/arete might be a whole different route though?

I like this chill little area back in by the perfect crime, good luck with the belay though.

Evan is right, I traversed, skipping the jam entirely.

Still a fun little route though.

My buddy just got engaged at the top of this route (and the top-rope anchors to the left)

Some early morning rock fall pushed us to this route. Nice. Very cold rock in the spring made it hard to feel my hands near the top. Also, belaying from a scree pile makes it challenging. The crux of the route was putting on my shoes without falling off the scree pile. On the plus side the size of the face offers a number of options for climbing. A great place to start leading.
