this climb has two starts. there is the start up a friction slab (5-6) just to the west of the beak buttress. or further west you can climb the inside corner facing west (5-7) up to the same belay stance. From this stance move up until you can gain crack though arch (5-9) onto slab and follow crack to another arch to semi hanging belay. Follow this arch west and up (5-7) to tree ledge belay. Climb up ledges and past trees to summit. The last arch has some nuisance brush growing out of it that the climber must maneuver through. I believe we encountered a piton in the arch near it's ending. I aided the crack first time I tried it and Ted Hammond freed it on a different day.
Just to the west and high up on the beak buttress via a dirt gully. Walk off.
