Description

An offwidth climb that begins from the platform reached after the steep steps on the Northeast approach, directly below Teacher's Lounge. The first two pitches move up and left through ledges and bushes and back right to Teacher's Lounge ledge. A much more attractive start for the 5.10 climber is to climb either New Wave or Broken Tree, both of which take more direct and pleasing lines to the Lounge. Pitch three moves straight left to the crack that splits the first two overhangs. Move up and over the overhangs (crux) and continue on sustained off-feet for another 100', belay at bolts (160'). Continue for another pitch and scramble to the summit, or rappel back to Teacher's Lounge. One can also toprope Patent Pending from the bolts on top of pitch 3, but it is a good lead.
