Stem your way up the finger cracks in the corner, angling right to the PMS ledge. Watch for loose rocks on the ledge below the anchor. Or take the direct finish to a 2-bolt anchor above the crack up and left of the big platform ledge.


Cracks in the corner just left of PMS.


Small gear up to 2".
Use the 2-bolt anchor for PMS (not visible from immediately below), or, now a 2-bolt anchor now exists atop the direct finish above the PMS ledge.

Nice climb. A little challenging for me and my fat fingers--at least through the bottom. Gets easier the higher you go.

Pleasant route. 4-5 pieces: finger size nuts/aliens & red Camalot at top; Worn cold shuts; Watch out for loose rock on ledge when pulling rope or lowering.
