Approach


Use the exact same approach as for Hollywood & Vine.

Route Description


This route climbs the bolted arete just left of Hollywood and Vine. It is best to climb Roach Edition for the first pitch unless you like 5.5 chimneys.

Pitch 1. Locate the start to H & V. There is a crack just to left. Follow the crack to the bolted slab on the outside of the H & V pinnacle. This pitch ends at the summit of the pinnacle.

Pitch 2. Climb the bolted arete just let of Hollywood & Vine. This is truly one of the only truly pumpy slab climbs I have encountered anywhere.

Rappel the route two pitchs to approach ramps.
It is possible to summit via the meadows.

Essential Gear


One set of stoppers
1.0 thru 2.5 cams
15 quickdraws
Rappel Device
Two Ropes for descent

First Ascent Info


Local legend tells of Dingus McGee nearly creaming his jeans on the first ascent of this one.
