Zach on the summit


P1- Start up a short steep wide crack, this turns to the left and goes into a chimney/tunnel. Crawl through this for about 50 feet and set up a belay.
5.5 160'

P2- Climb up using natural gear placements, aim for the bolt line which is quite striking near the arete, killer rock, really quality moves. 5.10c 150'

The summit has a secluded feel to it even though HWY 14 is visible.


The first pitch faces south. It's at the top of the hill you just walked up. The start is the only wide crack that leads to a tunnel.

3 single rope rappels will bring you down the south face and back near where you started


Standard rack to 4" QD's, some long slings nice.

60 m rope

The red line is the first ascent line.  The green line is a variation for the first pitch and the rap drilled bolts on the second pitch.  The scribbly purple arrows are the rap stations.  The third arrow may not be exact.  You only need one rope to descend this great route.  Take a set of channel locks or pipe wrench to open the summit register.  It is steel pipe with threaded caps that is surely rusted shut.  This is one route that I want to return to Cedar to repeat for the forth time. If I remember correctly the bolts I rap drilled on the upper pitch are 1/2".   <br /> <br />-TDA
