Description 

This is the second pitch to all the other routes on the wall. It climbs loose rock and ledges to the summit. Worth it for the cool top out.

one 70m rope will just make it all the way to the ground. Otherwise make two rappels.

Enjoy...


Location 

Top out pitch. Start at the anchor for Vultures are Waiting or Wave of Imitation.


Protection 

6 bolts and anchors.

As much as I love the choss, I'd recommend staying away from this one. The views are cool but you'd be safer hiking around to the top. The pitch is accurately described as loose low angle dirt ledges to a couple of 5.6 moves up a trough. Pick your cobble carefully, they are all loose. Good thing the falling choss doesn't funnel on the belayer...
You can lower off the 5.8 to 5.6 linkup with a 60m, you'd come short cleaning on rappel.
