Go up the small stairs. The crack up to the left of the start will take a mid-size cam. There is also a block one could sling. Then traverse right to the crack system out on the slab that leads to the double bolt anchor. Tentatively rated 5.2. One can do it without hands, making it arguably 4th class. There may be a 5.3 move somewhere.


Start on the left side of the slab. There are some small stairs in the rock to the left of the Juniper branch that reaches up the slab. Descent: Double-rope rap.


A handful will do it: A mid-size cam, perhaps 2.5 friend. A set of wired stoppers and a set of small RPs are useful.
