Ascend the face just left of the obvious pillar,
keeping on the face (no stemming out to the right!) and using the positive left-hand edge holds along the line of vegetation. Use good footwork on the tiny ledges to reach the overhang, then use the under-cling beneath the huge upper block (the “bell”) to reach up to clip the fourth bolt. Pull the overhang, finishing on the featured face to the huge, right-slanting ledge to the anchors. 5 bolts. 16 meters.
Ascend the pillar, then head up just right of the
central dihedral (clipping bolts out to the left)
directly towards the loose blocks wedged beneath
the “bell” (these are the “ball” of the “mission
bell”). Delicately move up onto the huge block,
heading straight up to the anchors. 16 meters. 5
Bolts. One or two extended draws are useful.
Start on top of the small slab base and
move up to the first bolt on some delicate, small
crimps or pinches. Then head straight up, take a
break beneath the “bell”, pull the overhang, and
head slightly left to the chains at the top. 5 bolts. 15 meters. OPTION: Stay directly in line or to the right (not the left) of the final two bolts for a more difficult finish that goes approx. 5.11a.
