Description [Suggest Change]
This climb begins left of the central wall and offers the best climbing up the buttress where the first pitch is moderate (5-6) with decent small stopper protection in the crack for the whole distance of the buttress. The top half has practically no protection up a corner dike and then moves are made out away from the dike to the left horizontally to finish up a steep wall to the top at an easy grade (5-3) for most of a ropes length little to no pro.
Location [Suggest Change]
Cone Head Mt.- Starts at the arch below buttress left or south of main face. It's the only prominent buttress on the cliff. Hike up and south until large pine is reached. Here it is possible to 4th class walk down or rappel off of tree, two ropes would be better. I have always walked down.
Protection [Suggest Change]
Stoppers and small to medium Tri-cams.
