Description

Combine the first two pitches into one pitch of about 100 feet that gets you on a nice ledge. The crux is coming out of a flared chimney to surpass a #4 camalot crack over a bulge. 2nd pitch is a nice airy handcrack that goes up and traverses left and up a broken crack system. 3rd pitch goes up the prow until you traverse further left behind giant flakes staying below the tree and then a sloping chimney where you belay. 4th pitch you can choose your own adventure. There is a small crack far left and an OW that squeezes down to the right of it. The Route has a great mixture of easy and hard climbing.

Location

Route Starts at the Prow. Walk up canyon until there is a section of slab; walk down until you are about a single rope length from the ground and rap off a horn.
