Climb a highly-featured, easy face to a small dihedral with a large, detached block that forms a roof. Exit the roof/dihedral to the left (crux), and then head up more easy, featured rock on small gear to a slung tree. Bring micro-cams and be diligent figuring out the tricky placements or be prepared to run it out on the easier terrain up top. A 70 meter rope is required.


This is the first route on the west face, heading up the hill to the north. The dihedral/roof formed by the detached block is easily visible from the base.


Rack to #3, doubles to #0.4 Camalots, nuts.
