DescriptionClimb up and right under small overhang and up the crack on the R side of the "alcove" (crux).
Follow the crack as it heads up left, becoming a ramp that meets a corner facing right. At this point, one can choose an easy escape by stepping down and left before climbing straight up, or (original) climb up along the corner to an inverted V overhang, then following a left-slanting crack around the corner (airy) and then up the outside edge of the corner system. Another variation steps R around the inverted V OH and continues up the corner/crack system.
LocationFinding the route from the top:
Walk about 200 yards west of the actual summit. The trail passes beside a knob at the top of a 20' cliff/slab, with a small patch of trees below and between it and the main cliff. TYC tops out on the main cliff below the center of the knob. There is a fixed rappel anchor on a tree to the left.
From below (not recommended): below and just out of sight of the upper ladder, the trail climbs through a steep notch to a level spot before turning up toward the ladder. Cut into the woods on climber's left and walk ~300 yards, cutting up toward the cliffs when the "bench" of land narrows and begins sloping downward.
Start: on top of boulders beneath an inverted V alcove with a small overhang crossing it, making it look like an 8' wide, ragged capital "A".
There is a rappel anchor on a conifer tree ~35' east of the route's top.
