This 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.

Great climb and beautiful setting. Would be a shame not to scramble up Lost Porch as well. Jul 7, 2014

A fun solo. I ended up doing the Southern-most portion of this route, climbing the "arete" next to the gully (on accident). Still mellow 5th class-ish though probably a bit more exposed. Rappelling is not necessary. To downclimb: scramble south over to the summit of the gully, downclimb across a traverse past a tree (still heading south) until eventually you can walk off.
