Description

P1 - Climb a splitter 6" crack that gradually narrows to fingers. The crack seems traverse left and is protected by two bomber drilled angles. Continue up the thin corner to an anchor with two drilled angles. 5.10, 130 feet.

P2 - Continue up the thin, right-facing dihedral and over the 4' roof. Continue in the thin crack to a fixed pin and move right. Continue straight up to an anchor with two drilled angles. 140 feet. of sustained C2.

P3 - Follow the crack off the belay to softer and sandier rock, and build an anchor before the route moves left. 5.9, 80 feet.

P4 - Move up and left until you arrive at a large ledge just below the summit (rock quality really poor). Continue to the summit via a thin C1 crack or 5.10 offwidth (10"-12").

Some people may want to break P4 into two pitches.

Descent - Double rope rappel down the northeast face off two drilled angles to a notch. Downclimb slabs east to the base.
