Follow the offwidth crack upward as you negotiate a series of not so obvious moves on not so bomber holds...


This route follows the obvious offwidth crack toward the right side of the cliff.


When I climbed this route last winter (05') there were 3 or 4 bolts drilled on the face out to the left of the crack that could be used for protection OR protect with standard gear and a few larger pieces at the bottom.

Anchors at the top either way you protect...

Good bolts on this one-I led it on gear, don't reccommend. The FA was done with bolts according to Swain, Brock/McMillen doesn't include anything about this. I was getting my old school ire up...and then had to relax and shrug. The route isn't good enough to really stress about regardless.

Bonus points if done as an off-chimney. Fun thrutch with bolts.
