  • Description 

    This pitch can be found by hiking up the Hawk Eagle Trail until you are just above a large slab to your left. Thrash south through some brush and boulder field until you reach a large diagonal slot. Head down toward a large tree on a platform. Noggin is the middle of three cracks straight above through a slightly overhanging, 25 foot wall coming off the east slabs. Climb the crack/corner up, finishing left on some positive huecos. Traverse right and down an angling slot to level ground to belay.

    Location 

    You can also approach this pitch from East Side route or any of the neighboring routes.

    Protection 

    The protection is good. There is no fixed anchor.
