This route has some classic delicate slab climbing the middle two pitches being quite sustained from the 5.8 to the 5.10 range.This climb after the 4th pitch joins onto the upper easy pitches of Reefer Madness.From here one can continue up for about another 700' to the summit of the formation.

P1)Follow the Slab /Groove up to the right to double anchors below a steep slab.Some cam pro. 5.6R.160'
P2) Just left of the belay climb with difficulty passed two bolts.The climbing stays interesting . Follow a total of 5 bolts trending slightly right to double anchors below another steeper wave.5.10/5.8R 180'.
P3)Straight up from the belay passing two bolts at 5.9+ ,continue at about 5.8R . At the 4th and last bolt a 70' runout at 5.6 to double anchors. 5.9+ 200'.
P4)Straight up at about 5.3 to double anchors 160'.(Junction with the 1780'Reefer Madness route). From here one can climb several 200' 5.3/4 pitches to the fine summit of this massive formation.
