The route being rappelled.

Description 

The easiest way to the top of this feature. Start in the dihedral and gain the big ledge. Here you can plug in some gear to protect the 5.5 face move if you aren't soloing. Be cautious of cranking hard on the holds near the crux since they are part of a detached block (can be seen at the bottom of the main photo.) Easy climbing to the top.

Location 

Start in the dihedral with the chock stone, go up.

Protection 

Standard rack or solo.

Bring small pro for the crack that divides the top if you're planning to TR other routes.
