(SUPER BETA) 2 Ropes is great for these routes. After Rappelling down the face on to the ledge below. Make sure either you have found a way to get the rope hanging above NEVER SAY NEVER to the ledge or rappel down with the rope attached to you. Once there you can have your belayer hook in to anchor themselves around the tree on the ledge. From here you will want to climb up roughly 3 feet and then traverse left around a corner that is pretty simple. Next from here you make your way around the next corner. The corner looks pretty blank and intimating but i've found there is a wonderful side pull towards the center of the dihedral it has a plant growing out of a crack. Pull onto the ledge on the opposite side of the dihedral and begin climbing up the face. About half way up the face you will find a giant flake which provides a great under cling. Follow this flake to the left for a nice side pull on the flake to another under cling much smaller. From here work the boulder y overhang bulge and top out.


This route starts in the dihedral and works its way up to the left then around the bulging overhang to top out.


3 stoppers or 3 cams Great cracks on top for anchors.
