DescriptionYet another east face scrambling route....
Finding the start can be a little difficult. After finding Fiddle Head in Fern Canyon, bushwack up the gully to the east of the rock. The bottom of the rock is broken and overgrown. Begin just to the right of a very obvious and large, left-facing dihedral where the rock becomes more defined and better quality. There will be some trees visible a coupel hundred feet up the face.
Work your way up to the trees. Find a very obvious widish crack that heads up and right from near the rightmost tree. Foot traverse the crack, and at the end cross the obvious gully. Climb the wall above to another ledge. The summit block will be obvious above and to the right of you. Climb the face about 10-20 feet to the left of the summit block (crux). At the top you will be able to step to the summit.
It is 2 single rope raps down the west face to the ground.
