DescriptionThis route heads up the left side of the broken rocks under the big roof on the right side of the trad area and goes over the roof near the left side of the roof. Then it continues on airy exposed climbing, ending just to the left of p2 of Packrat Dihedral. A 50m rope is sufficient.
p1: scramble up 3rd and 4th class rock about 50' to an alcove and set your first belay here (short "pitch").
p2: climb crack systems heading up and slightly right, staying below the big dihedral, toward a weakness in the big roof; pull the roof (5.8 crux) and set a belay above the roof.
p3: go up and right to airy exposed face climbing (5.6) similar to p2 of Packrat Dihedral (small pockets/cracks for pro); continue up and anchor at a tree on top.
LocationThe start of the route is toward the left side of the broken rock area beneath the big roof on the right side of the trad area. For orientation, p1 of Packrat Dihedral ends at the right side of the same roof.
For the descent, it is probably fastest to head up and left toward the cairned standard descent route that comes down the back.
