This route starts in the cave on the left face. It starts with the two pinches on this small face. Go straight out to the arete, follow the arete to the top-out. Don't use wall behind the route which will make it much easier.

This is a very cool climb and you'll get a lot of attention from all the hikers on the trail because they can't miss you.

When I climb this route it somewhat reminds me of the very popular route, "The Overhang" by the Pavilion.


Pads and a spotter so you don't fall down the cliff.
