BETA PHOTO: Commencement


Including for completeness sake; never climbed it, as there is no good way to build an anchor at the top. The only trees available are Pitch Pines (off limits) and the only gear available is under a not-so-large block.


Climb the arete to the left of Stacked and Exuberance, at the mouth of the obvious chimney. Easy walk-off.


Unknown. Very difficult gear anchor at the top. Bring VERY long runners/static line to reach back to allowable trees (100+ feet).
