Go up switch backing up outside corner face. Do some trickery mantling moves through a solid block face and exit left onto another platform belay. Climb up to another platform and climb the pine tree on the right fifteen ft. enabling you to step off tree past a non climbable ceiling. while the tree sways back and forth friction (5-6) immediately onto the roof slab above this ceiling and boogie up sustained friction slab to belay on tree ledges. Climb ledges easy friction separated by trees ledges to summit. Much loose rock was removed out of the arch on the first ascent.
LocationThis climb begin 50+ feet right of the giant dike. Easiest to get to by heading for the start of the nose or beak buttress and traverse west on wooded ledges. Landmark is the crescent crack. Other direst approaches are a bit dangerous up dirt channels.
