This is a great route that receives good winter afternoon sun. It is shady in the morning in summer. It is a good beginner lead. Attain the belay ledge shared with West Crack via a 4th class scramble. Spy the large, left-facing dihedral to the right. Build an anchor and climb the dihedral. When the large obvious flake at the top of the climb ends, then traverse left to the West Crack anchor.

To descend, rap from the fixed anchor at the top of West Crack. Rap with a 60 meter rope to the ledge at the base of West Crack or a 70 meter rope to the ground.


Small or standard rack with a bigger piece for last (crux) move.
