Description

Pitch 1: Climb up the slabby, left wall of the obvious, giant dihedral. Belay under the massive roof. 100 ft.
Pitch 2: Immediately step across the gap to the right wall of the dihedral. This is airy, and definitely the mental crux of the route. Shorter people may have to stretch. Traverse out onto the exposed face around the corner and then head up to a belay about 50 feet higher.
Pitch 3: Head up and slightly left aiming for a path into the vegetation.

Once you are on the big vegetated ledge, walk left looking for the last viable scramble to the summit. There are a couple bolts to protect the scramble. Walk off the summit trail.
