80m / 262ft, 11 bolts

Description:

80-metre 5.8 up an esthetic slab to featured face. The first pitch has some enjoyable climbing on thin crimps and sidepulls. The second pitch is blockier and finishes on a nice arete.

Pitch one is 5.8 45 metres: Step left onto foot ramp and angle up. Small crimps and smears bring you to a crack/groove. Up this towards the end of the big roof. From the tenth bolt follow a foot rail out left. Past bolt 11 the anchors are hidden, on good rock.

Trend left, not up, into a shallow ‘gully’ with an anchor. It is a semi-hanging belay. An old bolt under the roof can be seen, be sure to not climb up the dubious rock towards it, stay left. 11 bolts.

Pitch two is 5.8 35 metres: Step up and left onto a small ledge, past a bolt. Good holds out left bring you up a face to a short corner. Up the corner to a small roof, good holds, to a good ledge. Up and left towards a fun arete feature to a ledge with a two bolt belay. 10 bolts.

Descent: The rappel from the second anchor to the first is 31m. Our 60-metre rope reached on the first ascent but all subsequent ascents the rope has come up short. Bring a 70-metre rope to be safe or tie knots in the end of your ropes. The second rappel is to an anchor 10m off the ground. Third rappel to the dirt, 15 m downhill from start of route.

    Father's Day climbing. Wished it were longer and harder. Fun, nonetheless.

    Reminded me why I hate slab and multi-pitch. But my dad had fun!
