DescriptionThe start of the route is up right from where the trail meets the rock.
P1. Scramble 50 feet up to the bottom of a vegetated gully. Slog up the gully for 100 feet, then traverse left out of the gully and into an alcove with a fixed belay (5.7).
P2. The crux is pulling through the roof/bulge starting the second pitch (5.8). Sail up the long ramp ~150 feet (5.6), up to large ledge with a 2 bolt belay.
P3. Start 50 feet, traverse left, and build belay.
P4. Two options for the last pitch: head straight up climbing flakes or trend right into a left-facing corner with wide hands to fist jamming up to another two bolt belay anchor (5.8). This way is sustained with an overhung feel to it as it leans out left.
Descent: rappel the route with 2 60m ropes in two to three raps, multiple anchor options as there are many rap anchors.
