DescriptionThe first pitch is 5.6 and involves a series of ledges.
The 2nd pitch is the crux and is easier than it looks...even if it's wet. Great pro!
Stop and belay at the anchors on the wall above the top of the corner.
Walk left on the big ledge and belay.
The final pitch follows the edge of the void and primarily uses chicken heads for pro. The final moves are a bit pumpy and maybe harder than the actual crux but brief. Walk up and right through the forest and rappel off a tree back to the big ledge. You can rappel this route with one 60 meter rope but may have to do three rappels. I recommend trailing a second rope.
