Temporary Trail and Raptor Closures Details


Begin behind a large, freestanding flake on the south side and scramble up to a tree at the edge of the east face. Climb diagonally up and left, following the line of least resistance, reaching the summit in two pitches.

An alternate direct start climbs directly up the S Face from the vicinity of the flake to join the route above: 5.9+ R.


This route ascends the south face. Because it diagonals to the left, the follower needs to be solid at the grade.


Standard Flatiron rack.
