DescriptionThis climb starts about 250 feet from the southernmost point of the rock, just up hill from a right facing dihedral.
P1: ascend a wonderful, clean slab for 120 feet. At the 70 foot level there is a very old bolt, this is the only protection on this pitch until you get to the 100 foot level. Belay at the top of the right-facing dihedral on the left.
P2: make an ascending traverse to the left until you run into a water groove. Ascend this groove, which has huge holds, and belay at a tree. There is also a very old bolt on this pitch in the water groove.
P3: a short pitch above the tree leads to the summit. There is a tree below the notch in the summit which is used to descend with one rope.
The exciting runout on the first pitch and the jug haul on the second make this climb a Flatiron classic.
