Description 

Climb up onto the pointed chockstone, then step up onto the face and move left to the arÍte. Climb the inside corner hidden on the nose to its end and the short, easy face above it to the top.


Location 

On the east side of the smaller of the two major buttresses. Generally top-roped by lowering the climber, the route can be led by walking ~200' east into the woods at the level area about 40' below the tall ladder. Look for a short face with two prominent cracks (Forest Crack 1 & 2), then continue right (east) to a tree-choked cone leading up to the chimney with the pointed chockstone.


Protection 

Trad gear works well. The first move is committing but not difficult.
