Route Detail

This is the most popular route expect a short waiting period

Approx 160'
Located in the middle of the Bucksnort Slab in the obvious left angle dihedral just right of the large black streak

The route starts from a 5.4 scramble to the base with a large flat stance
begin the route with comfortable hands in the crack system to approx 8' up for your first pro hand jams for the next 50 or so feet with an awsome ly back towards the top.

The crux is near the top when you have a slight traverse left on a ly back under a large flaked boulder, fist jam and easy yourself over to the anchors (at this point you will lose sight of your belay but easy for communication)

set your stance for belay

The best way for descent is 2 50m ropes from the top

Can be done in 2 pitches if your not comfortable on the approach


Approach

from the road scramble up the obvious trail and the route will be directly in front of you

Essential Gear

Pro .5 to 1.5 cams

Slings are welcome

Nuts will help for the weary climber to add extra pro

recomended (2) 50m Ropes
a larger cam also help along for the novice climber for the final crux
