This is a nice, low-end TR in nearly in the middle of C face. It has 2 starts as you can go up the right or left side of a flake-ish chunk of rock before the second part. The reason why I remember this so vividly, is that this route, for some undecipherable reason, was the site of a venture into soloing...which I don't recommend for the newbie. While it is simply easy to get to the top of the flake, the upper part is less-than-perfectly-secure for the fledgling soloist. Don't. Enjoy the TR.


This goes either right or left of the large triangular flake-like chunk. Then straight up to the top.


A TR or a complete loss of your senses. There were 2 fixed anchors above this route.

There is really only one bolt at the top which should be backed up with a tree about 30' back from the edge. Any of the other bolts would be really wide angle for your anchor. Bring something to cover the sharp rocks on the tree anchor.
