BETA PHOTO: SW Direct on the left, East by SW on the right.


The left of the two options on the south (or southwest) face of East Pillar. Start 8' left of the maple tree and climb through the prominent V groove, then follow a pair of vertical seams to the top.


8 ft left of the tree on the left side of the free standing East Pillar. You can scramble up the back side or hike the trail 2 minutes further east.


Almost no gear, but it WOULD take a blue BigBro. Revised to add: in the absence of a BigBro, you could get a small cam or two in the crack that runs up and left of this line, just above the wide horizontal. That will be a few feet left of the crux moves through the V slot. The upper face is going to be virtually unprotected in any event.
