Each of the three pitches on this route are superb, and together they form one of the loveliest 18's (5.10a) in the state. Start off the donga, below the 15m hand crack on the left.
1) 15m 18. Climb the hand crack to the large ledge on the left. Take plenty of 2 to 3 friends.
2) 30m 17. The hand crack continues, with one difficult section where it becomes off-width (though you can climb the face on the right), to another great belay ledge atop the Ramadan pinnacle.
3) 40m 18. As for Ramadan.


The route is part of Frews Flutes. To get down you can summit and walk off the back side. It may be possible to rappel using slings around the rock with double ropes. All of the bolted rappel stations have been removed. This is a bolt free area.


Trad rack plus extra hand size 2 1/2 to 3 1/2 friends.
