DescriptionLook for the obvious left facing corner, just north of the clean face.
P1: (5.8) Climbs intermittent cracks to a dihedral, followed by a slight bulge. Continue on easy ground and over a few ledges. Belay at a large ledge below a wide crack. (Large gear needed for the belay, #4 Camelot comes in handy, but not necessary)
P2: (5.8) Climb up the wide crack, til its possible to step right onto the face. Continue up and right to the corner of a small roof. Use a short crack to pull around the roof and continue up through intermittent cracks and face to the top of the formation.
