DescriptionThis 500 foot route starts about 50 feet south of Tiptoe Slab. The route ascends the rib in the center of Front Porch. This would be a good first solo. After about 260 feet, you will meet up with the second pitch of Tiptoe Slab. So, with a 60 meter rope, you may be just short of making the tree belay on the second pitch. Best to do two short pitches and make the 3rd pitch end at the tree belay. There is not a good place to belay right before the tree belay. The last pitch is the same as Tiptoe Slab.
Descent: Make a one rope rap to the west off a large tree.
