Description Suggest change

Can be done in 1 or 2 pitches. I would recommend one, which definitely can be done with a 60m rope.

Begin on the nice-looking right-facing dihedral, on the right (south) end of the west face of the formation. Good protection, good rock. Follow the lichen-covered crack in the middle of the dihedral to a small roof and step left, continuing on easy 5th class to the summit. The crack can also be continued through the roof (5.7) instead of traversing left.

If climbing as 2 pitches, there’s a belay ledge below the roof with ample protection. 

Protection Suggest change

GEAR: Single set to #3, doubles in .4-.75, set of nuts. Bring more cams if you’re going to climb as one long pitch.

DESCENT: Rappel off the summit block slung with webbing/cord to the saddle at the SE end of the formation with a 60m rope. Inspect cord/webbing and be prepared to leave new anchor material.
