P1: From the top of the pillar climb hands/finger/face up and left through a series of ledges and belay on top of the last ledge.

P2: Continue up face moves and gain a hand crack. Where it looks like the crack is petering out step left into a nice handcrack and continue to the top with a little route finding.

When we did this route, I made another belay near the top of the cliff, making it three pitches.

This route involves a bit of route finding. It doesn't really follow one particular crack system.


This route starts at the top of either the Standard Route or Black Dynamite. After you reach the top of the pillar upon climbing one of these routes, the route starts up and left.


Standard trad rack: small pieces to large hands pieces. 1 #4 Camalot may be helpful.
