About 20' off the ground is a flake/block through a short steep wall. Getting stood over this section is the first crux. A second crux is found further up getting past a licheny face to easier ground. Once the route is cleaned up a bit this may not be too bad.


The route starts pretty much at the left side of the main face (almost dead center of the overall crag photo) below an obvious flake/block about 20' up. Climb easy ground up to the flake/block and continue up past the block. Instead of continuing up the small crack system above, step up and right to onto a whitish slabby face capped with a diagonal crack system. Follow this up to easier ground to the top. Walk off west (left facing rock) and follow a rocky stream bed down to slabs.


A variety of trad gear from small to medium pretty much protects the route adequately. There is no fixed gear but great bomber placements at the top for belay.
