Description 

From the top of a short, triangular-shaped pedestal left of Left Corner, climb up a short 5.6 hand crack and easier broken rock to a small Douglas Fir. From the tree either climb up and left over a short headwall (best finish, but no anchor at top) or traverse right and up to the top. Beware of some loose rock. Use gear for an anchor or traverse right to the bolted anchor above Left Corner.


Location 

Descend via rappel off anchor bolts on Left Corner.


Protection 

Cams up to 1.5".
