A chossy start leads to killer dihedral climbing and an exposed, testy finish. Starts in the dihedral below a bushy oak and follows the thin crack before busting out right to the first bolt. The direct finish follows the bolt and stud straight up to the top, while the easier variation heads out left along a lower-angle ramp. We lassoed a boulder on top to augment the old one-bolt anchor. Wander over SW to the rings for Prancer to rap off. This climb needs an anchor...


Far lower left side of the east face of Tri-level. Take the "trail" down around Domestique, skirting out and around the boulder aprons at the base.


7 bolts, nuts, singles to #2 Camalot

The final moves on the direct finish were protected by a bolt that is now missing its hanger; not sure why it's gone, but a protectable hole a few feet away may explain that...The direct finish gets the stars!
