DescriptionStart on the block, and place pro in the crack. Climb the huecos to the the left of the crack, and follow them as they wander up and left. When the huecoes die out, head up and right to pass an overhang (crux). Watch out for loose rock in this area, we trundled a toaster-sized block here.
You are now on a large ledge. Head right (east) and climb a short slot to emerge on the east face. Follow this 100' to the top (almost no pro but only about 5.5). The entire climb can be done in one ~160' long pitch (but watch for rope drag).
This climb is pretty good but is slightly loose right at the crux. You have to be clever stuffing cams in holes to protect it.
