DescriptionP1: Follow the crack system over easy terrain for about 15 ft and then start trending left to reach the overhang. Once you reach the roof, place a good piece and cut around left to reach a hand crack(5.10). Follow crack to shuts. (This pitch frequently stays dry in a light rain.)
P2: From the anchors, head up and right to reach a pair of cracks. Climb the cracks (crux) to reach a stance. You can place tons of gear here if you can get your hands free! Continue straight up to reach an overhang, pass it on the left and then diagonal right toward the anchors below the SJM traverse ledge.
P3: This is also the SJM Overhang Finish. From the anchors, continue up and over a large ledge. Climb up and right aiming for a large roof split by a crack system. Place good gear at the base of the roof and gun it up and over the lip. Easy but wild finish!
You can rap down with double ropes via the SJM anchors to the right of the finish.
