Description

This route follows the left side of the East face until it reached the Southeast ridge. From there, it follows the ridge past two notches to the summit.

Start at the low point of the rock, near the South (left side). Work your way to the ridge near a large pine tree. From there, follow a slot/chimney to the a large ledge. Alternatively, exit the slot to the right and climb the face to the top of a pinnacle and traverse left back into the slot and onto the ledge.

Crank up the short, south-facing headwall to get to the East face once again, and climb up to the ridge once more and to the next large notch. Bypass the notch by traversing West and North.

Climb up a steep, exposed 10 foot section at the notch that will deposit you on an easy 30 foot ramp that leads to the summit.

Descent - follow the Northeast ridge to a gully, and descend the gully.

Protection

Standard Flatiron rack.

Just beware, there is a huge runout on the first pitch; it really is a solo.

And don't make the mistake of going to the roof straight above you. About 20-30 feet below that is a pseudo-ledge that makes an easy traverse to the belay tree. If you do go to the roof below the bulge, the traverse over is at about the 5.8-9 range. Nov 3, 2009
