Description

This is one of the better beginner multipitch trad lines in the area. All of the pitches have reasonable pro and very easy climbing punctuated by short sections of 5.5 climbing. From the point where the approach trail meets the rock, hike down about 50 feet to a well-worn spot underneath a tree. The route follows the slab "arete" to your right, and is identified by looking about 40 feet up to a pair of slot/offwidths.

P1. There are several variations. The easiest, and most well-protected, is to follow the slabs up and then skirt the offwidth slots to the left. Move back right where convenient, and then follow some buckets even further right to a huge and obvious belay spot near a boulder. A fun variation follows the left of the two slots (5.6), moving right to the buckets at the top.

P2. Move left, turn a corner/overhang (5.5), and move back right to another huge belay spot at the base of the headwall.

P3. Move left on the slab again, and ascend the "keyhole" just to the left of the headwall area.
