Description

P1- An easy dihedral leads up to two or three ledges. Pick the highest if you want to do the route in 3 pitches.
P2-Stemming in a right facing corner leads to a lieback. Now, power through the roofs above. You will want some TCU's for this pitch. You can keep going through the last roof or belay on a nice ledge on the left.
P3- Gun it to the top.

Location

Go down the descent gully and take a left. Follow the wall around for awhile until you get to a huge right facing dihedral. There will be a crack to the right with a dead pine about 100 ft. up. Construction Job starts on the next major crack system over. There will be some bushes in the crack down low.

Protection

Nothing larger than a #3 camalot. Lots of TCU's nice.
