A great, technical seam up a steep headwall is the highlight of this little gem.


The seam splitting the headwall is obvious. Climb the easy corner below to access it.


RPs/HP offsets (bring a few of the medium to bigger sizes) to #2 camalot. Gear is excellent despite appearances. Rap anchors on top.

I'm not used to placing that many micronuts in a row. Spooky route for me, but they probably would have held. Also, you can get a few cams in every now and then to supplement the nuts. For the record, the seam is smaller than a grey metolius.

Fun route though. Didn't use the seam that much because it's so thin, found the route was almost like gear-protected face climbing.

protects really well with rp's and good small (finger sized) cams to pair up with them. technical and a little bold feeling, but your waist is never more than 3' above good gear. a gem, to be sure.
