DescriptionLocate the obvious arete that divides the north and east faces of the cliff. Begin left of the arete.
Pitch 1:Face and crack climb up and over the roof (5.6). Continue up easier, broken rock to belay on good ledge atop pillar below slanted roof.
Pitch 2:Climb up right and follow wide crack left of arete to small belay stance on the arete.
Pitch 3:Face climb up the steep, exposed arete, stay out on the arete as much as possible moving at times from one side to the other when necessary. After clipping a bolt, I seem to remember that there wasn't much protection above it, so if you see a gear placement opportunity, do not pass it up. Climb to the top of the arete and belay from the trees on top.
Descent:Follow a path left along the top of the wall until you come to a rappel station. 3 single rope, 80 foot rappels to the ground.
