Description

This route has good climbing on each pitch, generally solid rock and an airy finish.

Start to the left of the rappel gullies on a clean, less than vertical crack covered slab. A small tree can be slung for the first piece of pro.

Pitch 1: 110' 5.7
Climb low angled cracks straight up to a rampy crack system heading for a ledge with small trees. Just before the ledge pull a bulge/lie back move (5.7). Belay from trees.

Pitch 2: 100' 5.7
Move left from belay and follow crack system to a short vertical section just below another ledge with trees.

Pitch 3: 120' 5.7
Step left from the ledge and gain a steep crack system with a couple loose blocks. Move carefully up to a another steep corner section in a gap just below the summit. Belay from fixed anchors.

Descent:
Scramble down to climber's right to gain the large notch visible from the ground, and find a sling anchor and rap. Three more single rope raps from trees will bring you to the ground.
