Approach


From Loggers Ledge (see the upper wall approach on the main page), traverse to the right and drop down. Keep traversing until just past the big roof above. When you reach the east side, look up for a left angling ramp. This is the start.

Route Description


The rating on this route is a notorious sandbag. Figure on 5.6 to 5.7 climbing on the first pitch.

Pitch #1 - 5.6 to 5.7 - Move up the ramp and gain the right leaning dihedral fistcrack. Stem, jamb, and chimney up this crack. When you see a crack cutting over to the left follow it (directly up is much harder). Jambs and face moves bring you up the face to below the right side of the ledge above. Traverse accross and belay at the double bolts. (90 feet)

Pitch #2 - 5.4 to 5.5 - Move up the chimney on the left side of the ledge exiting into the blocky terrain above. Keep moving up on 4th class rock all the way to the top. (190 feet)

Essential Gear


1 set of cams from tiny to 4"
1 set of nuts
60 meter rope
