A chossy start leads to killer dihedral climbing and an exposed, testy finish. Start left of the bolt line shining ~25' above in a shallow dihedral with a small, bushy oak tree. Follow this thin crack before busting out right for a ways to the first bolt. At the top of the dihedral decide how you'd like to finish: the direct finish follows the bolt straight up to the top, while the easier variation heads out left along a lower-angle ramp. The old single 3/8"+SMC anchor has been updated to 1/2" stainless, thanks to the ASCA for supplying hardware.


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 + a few more finger-hand size

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!

Looks terrific Andy! I will help replace that old hardware if you want.
