Clean face with horizontal and diagonal cracks. Though most often toproped, this climb is easily protectable and is a fun lead on excellent rock.


The South Face route is located just to the left of the summit stairs. Walk off.


Small to medium cams. 2 bolt anchor.

I led it onsight but it wasn't a picnic. The start was a bit wet and slick, and I nearly grounded when my foot buttered off after placing my first piece. The holds were dirty and often filled with leaves, so I had to clean the cracks before placing gear. Once I pulled out a big clump of grass! Climbing through the tree branches was unaesthetic. I thought it had some tricky moves for 5.6. Jul 30, 2013

Hmmnn... another recollection: In the corridor which leads to the steps up Ceremonial, we did a repeat of an old route which ascends the face on the right as one is going up. It was mossy, but had good holds and an exciting finish. If I remember right, one can scramble off the top from the north side of this same formation... May 22, 2014
One of the bolt hangers is currently missing so bring a thick sling to back up to the post. Jan 3, 2015
Following on this route as a beginner was a lot of fun, and allowed plenty of chances for practicing technique. Lots of branches from adjacent tree to climb through in one section. Feb 9, 2015
