Height of route: 160'
Overview
FA: Eric Barrett, George Connor, Dave Stam, 1978. FFA: Dick Richardson and friends, 1979. A mixture of pumpy and technical climbing. Thought-provoking stemming crux leads to a big rest before a pumpy undercling/roof (have .6-.75 cams ready). Difficult to toprope. The awesome second pitch has well-protected and sustained thin face moves between knobs. Occasional gear placements between bolts. Rappel the route or climb 40 feet of runout 5.6 face to the summit. From the first anchor its easy to toprope Burnt Offerings and Holy Smoke.
