Description

This climb is a combination of crack, chimney, and overhang climbing. Although it is 5.6 it will test your endurance. End the climb on a ledge near the top of small tower.

Protection

To set up a top rope, you can lead the West face(short 15 foot scramble). Then use some cams, mostly larger, with a 25 foot piece of perlon, and you can whack three climbs on one anchor. Nice lead: bring a rack!

Protects well. The crux overhang is committing, but there is good gear before, during and after the crux ... just don't hang out too long! Save some big gear for the belay on the summit, or belay off to the side (as suggested in Swartling) with medium gear.

A second crux is figuring out how to get off without leaving any gear. We thought traversing the south side looked easiest. Aug 1, 2005
