Description 

This climb has two starts. You can either begin up the outside corner's face long crux (5-8-)(protected by two bolts, these bolts looked poorly 20+ years ago) and get stopper gear in higher up or go up hill east to enter above this face by a traverse onto the outside corner. Once on the outside corner continue up face short crux (5-8-) to reach horizontal tree ledge and belay. From the tree ledge climb the v-groove crack (5-5) and traverse left to end of tree ledge to belay. From this ledge move up and left through break in arch (5-6) to the summit. The V-groove tends to fill up with leaves and dirt unless someone has recently climbed it. It's easily cleared away while climbing. The last pitch at the top and is often damp. Pitch one especially when traversing into the face should be split into two pitches because of the rope drag.


Location 

There is a giant dike on the western side of the cliff. This outside corner is the western wall of the dike.


Protection 

Trad rack. Walk off.
