Description

This climb has two starts. You can either begin up the outside corner's face long crux (5-8-)(protected by two bolts, these bolts looked poorly 20+ years ago) and get stopper gear in higher up or go up hill into the giant dike to traverse left crux onto the outside corner. Continue up face short crux (5-8-) to reach horizontal tree ledge and belay. Climb the v-groove crack (5-5) and no pro and traverse left to end of tree ledge to belay. Go up and left through break in arch (5-6) to the summit. The V-groove tends to fill up with leaves and dirt unless someone has recently climbed it. It's easily cleared away while climbing. The last pitch at the top and is often damp. Pitch one especially when traversing into the face should can be split into two pitches because of the rope drag.

Location

There is a giant dike on the western side of the cliff. This outside corner is the western wall of the dike.

Protection

Trad rack. Walk off.
