Description 

Successfully escaping the weekend crowds, I led Mike Endicott up this on Aug. 7, 2011. We climbed the leftmost route on the upper-left tier. From the main ledge at the base of V-dihedral, climb a narrow face to left of the V-dihedral, bearing left to the left edge of the face. Continue up right side of arete to where it is blocked by a bulge. Move right under the bulge, then up and right to a ledge. Move right along ledge, then step down to a two-bolt anchor. Belay. The block you are now standing on MOVES!


Location 

From the highway, you can see the short arete on the skyline, on the far left of the upper-left tier. Lots of bushes must be whacked (and raspberries injested) during the thrash to the upper-left tier.


Protection 

SR. I had to fiddle to place decent pro in the less-than-stellar rock. Be sure to protect for the second along the upper traverse.
