Start about 10' right of Dig It (the corner) and make a high step up and reach a good hold. Takes an awkward mantle move then things get easier. The original route went right after stepping up until you were on the side facing Foothill. A variation goes straight up after the mantle move to the (new?) set of anchors (climbers right) below the Dig It anchors. The direct variation is loose. Or at least it was last time I was there. If a few more people climb it (the variation), it might make a fun lead.


Starts on the separate block right of the hikers summit. Start 10' or so right of Dig It - which is at the corner.


Top Rope. Set up the TR by climbing Dig It (5.11) or simply walk around to the backside and do an easy mantle move (4th Class/5.2) to gain the anchor. Use the lower set of anchors directly above the climb. You'll probably want to bring a cordelette.
