Anyone got any pics? For an "obscure but ultra classic" I am surprised I can only find 2 single pictures online, and they both seem to be the first pitch.

Trying to get psyched for the send Tuesday!

Don't worry, I'll bring some pics back :)

I hope these are informative & build the psyche. Definitely one of my favorite pitches. I lieback the end of the crux, although many people I know straight-in it. If you are okay running out a long 5.7 hand traverse on a flake, the large gear in unnecessary.

The formation. You can see the splitter to the left of the dark water streaked rock.

such a slog- but a truly fine route

try the third pillar to sol linkup, you can drop right in on top of it..

helps to have 2 cars

3rd Pillar to SOL sounds like a good linkup.

Good Question...

When I was up there a few years ago there was some terribly close rockfall that missed us at the base and it was a real challenge to try and outrun some of those blocks.

Not sure how solid that whole area is now, but do be careful up there!

These are cool, one of the kids from the Sanctuary sphere of influence put it down a month or so back, onsight, and E Robinson speaks highly of it, always encouraging me to try it... great photos, especially the approach, what a Sisyphean looking undertaking...
