5 pitches. 1) 6c, 2) 6a+, 3) 6c+, 4) 5, 5) 5. Opened ground-up in 1979, this fantastic route is hardly showing its age other than sporting a few more bolts than it had back then! Pitch 1 is a hard warm-up on pure grey stone demanding confident footwork. Pitch 2 runs it out a bit on awesome rock and Pitch 3 is fingery with plenty of bolts. An easy, but atmospheric finish past ancient junipers leads to the top. © ROCKFAX

Lead crux, first pitch hard in the sun. ran top pitches together. Best belay spot yet, straddled 1000 year old juniper tree with vultures nest.
