Running it out, 2009.

Steep route (about -15 deg) on positive holds the whole way. Start on the huge lieback and dyno up to a L-facing flake. Move up to the killer jug, then right up the great finger crack. Now make a move out on the face to the right and finish up and left. Cool route.


TR: Climb the tree on the backside, set anchor in middle of single bolt on left and double bolts on right. The route actually goes up the center of these bolts. Trad: Aliens, TCUs, --about 3 pieces total is what you're gonna need. Trad would be runout....

Sorry everybody, but I broke off a hold in the crux section going for the onsight a couple months ago. The hold was on the blank section of rock when you exit the crack out right to the final crux face moves. The route still goes though, and the grade remains the same. Sorry!

Was up there yesterday (9-16-2010) and the hanger and nut were missing from one of the two anchor bolts? We used the anchors to the left and used the one remaining anchor as a directional. Not sure if there was a safety issue with the hanger that is now missing???
