First ascents seem like panning for gold. Sometimes you can strike it rich, but most of the time you just end up with a handful of dirt.

Climb the left angling crack 15 feet to a sloping. Traverse left, then climb up into the right angling layback crack/arete thingie. Climb this feature 20 feet to a ledge. Now follow the 2-3" crack up and right to the top.


Just around the corner right of Burly Bulges, this starts between the two large rocks in the trail and the tree.


Gear to 3". Tree anchors.
