Bits and Pieces follows the top-to-bottom crack system on the right edge of the wall. Start in a short wide crack just right of a small tower formation. This climb gets mixed reviews, some like it, some don’t. My partner and I found it to be quite enjoyable with excellent climbing all the way up the wall. If you don’t plan hiking to the summit of the peak, the final slab pitch isn’t worth it.
Rack: 2 ea .5-4”, 1 ea 4.5”, 6”optional but nice, medium-large nuts, 2 ropes.
Descent: rappel the route.
