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


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.


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