Description [Suggest Change]

Although this climb has two pitches, the second pitch gets the three star rating. Very nice crack climb.

Location [Suggest Change]

Located on the left side of the formation. Purchase the Marty Karabin pocket guide for specifics.

A moderate up-hill bushwhack is required to get to the base of the rock. We found a good descent path (climbers right- follow the gully) back to the road, however, which made the return trip pleasant.

Protection [Suggest Change]

Standard rack to 3 inches. There are two bomber rap anchors at the top of this climb.
