On the first ascent of this route, before nuts and cams were introduced, only one piece of protection was used on the top pitch, a piton in the groove to the right and below the pinnacle. The pinnacle itself was considered unsafe to place a sling runner.
P1) Climb the blunt arete and finish left of the spike on LC.Scramble to belay at a oak tree on the right side of the terrace. 5.8, 100'
P2) Move left and climb the rib on its left side. Step right around the rib and up a short groove to its top below and right of the large overhanging pinnacle. Climb the crack on the right and get onto the top. Finish up the steep wall by a crack or small holds on the right. 5.9+, 80'
