Climb a thin face with "adequate" protection to a pair of V slots up high. Brilliant Sunset style climbing on an exposed orange face will leave you huffing, puffing and smiling. Climb atop a large boulder/block at the base, hand traverse out left and then fire it to the top. There is really good rest up there if you can just get your... well I'll let you figure it out for yourself.


One of the first routes you encounter after the trails splits. On the large face to the left of the Righthand/Lefthand Cracks. Not quite on the arete and to the left of the bolted line.


The gear is there, go find it. A nice new anchor awaits with a beautiful topout.

A scary thought to try and lead this thing. I would suggest sussing out the gear and maybe even preplacing some of it. There are a few sections where you could hit the slab below.
