Description

Work up the right side of the slab past two bolts to the overhang and climb over it, up the short vertical crack to an easy ledge.
Step left and climb the face and seam (5.7 R) to easier, low-angle rock. Continue upward and slightly left before angling up right to reach the ledge.
The difficult moves are well-protected. The bottom slab is quite an exhilirating runout (I've seen one person run down it after slipping at the clip), and the bit of 5.7 above is poorly-protected.
There are now bolt anchors at about 65'. Be wary of the rope-snatching flake below.

Location

The right side of the slab near the right end of the Isobuttress; just left of a mossy drainage crack.
To Descend, use double ropes or two rappels. There are anchors on trees for single rope rappels.

Protection

Modern Trad Rack.
Three bolts (2009).
Rap anchors at top (2009) and at 65' (2011).

Photos

Be careful of some weak orange rock under the 'hang as you're clipping the 3rd bolt. Minor edges there snapped off (minor = not crucial and don't change the route) on both me and a partner. Jul 18, 2017
