<br>
Approach: scramble up a ramp to a small ledge and set up an anchor.<br>
<br>
Pitch 1: climb a thin crack in a corner, then work left and climb a slab.  Climb a steep corner with a hand crack and move left to a good belay ledge.<br>
<br>
Pitch 2: traverse right and climb a right-facing corner to a slab.  Angle left up the slab to a chimney/gully, and  continue up to a 2-bolt anchor.<br>
<br>
Pitch 3: Move right and climb a flake with a wide crack, then up a slab to a big ledge.<br>
<br>
Rappel descent (easier): traverse right on the ledge to a 2-bolt rappel anchor with slings, then do two rappels to the gully by Bolt Cola.<br>
<br>
Walk-off descent (longer): traverse left across chimney, then continue left on ledges until it's possible to down-climb to easier terrain.
