Just right of Green Adjective the climb, is a crack that turns a corner right, at the end of this traverse is a bolt. This climbs the crack system, to the bolt and then on upward. The crux is between bolt 1 and bolt 2, and is an exciting lead move. Well worth the hike up here, Prepositional Phrase gets easier in the upper reaches, but maintains a nice space between bolts too keep it fun.


7 draws for the route, 2 for the chains, and maybe 1 medium to small cam to protect the initial crack/ramp.

You get a nice view of the start of Meat Puppets from the anchors. Anyone know what the line directly above the anchors finally went at? Looks burly.

Lots of gardening help uncover a nice thin crack hidden underneath the vegetation. A micro and maybe a BD #1 can be used to get to the first bolt safely. The crux follows, featuring stupid-hard slabbing. Bring your A-game or watch your shins when you fall past the corner. More exciting moves await until you clip the 3rd bolt, after which the climbing eases a bit. The upper slab is beautiful with thin edges peppered left and right and nicely spaced bolts. 120' of quality climbing.

Ten, I think the green dihedral is still a project.
