The east face is closed to climbing year-round due to possible sensitive/endangered plant species.
The NW face and West face routes remain open.
See Closure section below for more details.
Usually begun with Free For All, this link-up of classic (mostly) hand cracks takes a direct line up the South Face, ending at the hiker's trail for an easy descent.
Dod's Jam (5.10b): Lieback & stem your way up an off-width corner that's actually quite fun, not awkward. From the top of the corner, monkey past a tree with some slings, then tackle an exquisite thin hands crack (.10b) splitting a steep, exposed face below the spacious Big Ledge.
Dastardly Crack (5.9): Step left from Big Ledge into a deep right-facing corner. It's classic hands and stemming pretty much the whole way to the top, with the crux coming where the crack bulges about halfway up. Finish on a nice ledge with rap hangers. Rappel from here with two ropes or a single 70m, or...
Get ready for some adventure: (5.7) Progress upward from the bolted anchors up broken cracks. Beware a number of disconnected blocks. Navigate to the right and follow a large crack to the obvious bolted anchors on the rock face above you.
