DescriptionFollow the left-facing dihedral
P1-Finger sized crack up past small bush/tree
Belay at the notch with the perpendicular crack (there is a lot of debris from old gear and such)
P2-Continue up dihedral to ledge
Climb straight up past a single bolt (5.8 PG) to a bolted belay or go left past an undercling (protectable, but its hard to see the gear). At the end of the undercling, head up through an intermittent crack in a groove. There is a bolted belay above on the left.
LocationObvious left-facing dihedral that splits the rock up the middle.
To walk off, get to the top of the ridge and walk off South side to base (rappel is recommended)
