Description

The first pitch is the crux. Climb a short ramp to a bolt (sometimes the hanger is missing, if it is, use a wire). Using hand-placed pins or tricams, ascend to a very short 5.8 lieback to another bolt. From here follow incipient cracks up on cams and tricams to a drilled pin, an old bolt, and the anchor directly under a small roof. For the second pitch, traverse left on rivets, then up on small nuts to another anchor. For the third pitch, follow old bolts/drilled pins up and slightly left to join Triple Exposure just before the summit notch. Two double-rope rappels to the ground.

Protection

quickdraws, small nuts/wires for rivets, small tricams for pin scars, small to medium cams, pins come in handy, either lost arrows or medium to large angles TO BE HAND-PLACED. DON'T BRING A HAMMER!
