DescriptionOne of the finest 5.6's you'll ever do. The climbing is fantastic and the position is amazing. The first and last pitches can be rope stretchers.
Pitch 1: 5.6 This climb begins up a left facing dihedral/ramp. Follow the crack occasionally using face holds to a ledge and bolted anchors.
Pitch 2: Take a tenuous traverse left. Be careful to protect for the second here. Take this short pitch to a ledge that is almost parallel to the last belay. Natural anchor takes .5 to 1 inch
Pitch 3: Use face features to pull a short steep section and then follow the crack/seam up into another left facing dihedral to the summit.
From the top walk back away from the face descending a small slab to a grassy bowl. Then climb up another steep slab for 30ft and then continue hiking west to get to hiking trail. Once at the trail follow it down to the right.
