Start by climbing the orange face, heading away from the crack of Manute Bol. Continue up to a great stance where you clip the 2nd bolt. At this point, if you dare to use the loose hold, the move can be made much easier, but you can certainly do without it. Once you gain the 3rd bolt, head up and right, pull the small roof and gain a large ledge to rest on. From the ledge, traverse left passing a bolt and aim for a small overhang. Pull this overhang and continue up the white face. The crux moves are reaching the pin which lies about 7 ft below the anchors. Very nice climbing with good rests!


This route starts on the face immediately to the left of Manute Bol. Behind this route is the trail that goes directly to Idol Point if you want to bypass the Fern Cirque.


7 bolts, 1 pin, shuts. Pin can be backed up with a slightly smaller than finger sized cam. Last bolt before the old pin is loose. Inspect it before clipping it and trusting it.

Last bolt before the old pin is loose. I hand tightened it more than 3 rotations. Please inspect this before clipping since this protects the crux.
