The crux is on the lower slab. Start up and to the right of Perennial and move right unto to no name slab to gain tree ledge. Move down right till below white rock fractured wall. climb up central depression (5-2) till it terminates at good belay ledge slightly to the right. climb up steep Gunk like horizontal breaks in head wall (5-4) till able to escape right to trees growing out of near vertical gully. Two raps to ground. Although I gave this climb a low rating the last pitch is exciting. Don't know condition of this fractured wall now. It was solid then and before my brother and I climbed it, I free soloed it.
On the far side of the tree ledge below and east before the third pitch of Perennial. Go up when there is no other way to go. No belay to keep rope straight.
trad rack. Little protection until last pitch.
