DescriptionWe started on the far right of the ledges under a small, left-facing dihedral.
P1. Work up and to the left for best pro options, 80 feet of (5.8+). It is runout after 80 feet to the first Terrace (5.7). Top out 20 feet east of big tree. 160-180' in total per JFM.
P2. It is in the middle of the wall just under a bulge. Belay here because it protects belayer from falling rock. This is the 120 foot crux pitch, due to sparse placments and loose rock (5.8).
P3. This is the shortest pitch around 50 feet+. This rock is more solid than the rest of the route, mostly 5.7 with a couple of 8 moves.
