Description

This is a short and exciting route that follows a wide crack/chimney to a left-leaning ramp and to the summit.

Start at the slot that you downclimbed for the approach. Follow the widening huecoed chimney until you can traverse left following a sandy, rotten ramp. Protection is adequate, but the rock is crumbly. After traversing some 15 feet, a finger crack will lead you through a weakness in the overhang and onto the summit.

Descend - downclimb the East Face (see East Face description).

Protection

Standard rack.
