Description 

this climb has two starts. There is the friction ramp slab (5-6) just to the or further left west the inside left facing corner (5-7) to the same belay stance. From this stance move up until you can gain crack though arch (5-9) onto the slab crack to another arch with a 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 and a old pin. I aided the crack first ascent and Ted Hammond lead it free.

Location 

Just west or left of beak buttress is the ramp start.

Protection 

Trad rack.
