Spliter and smear your way to the overhang then reach right to the two handed sloper on the mossy rock, that is the crux. Then head left to the ledge where you have another 10 feet of ladder holds to top out.


100 yards climbers left of the usual access gully and up quite a bit of loose scree. Just follow the bottom of the cliffs north until you see the overhang. There is another access gully 25 yards farther to the left and is just as exposed as the other one. BE CAREFUL!


Lots of big boulders at the top to wrap around.
