The climb begins at the center of the face near a large (wide) pine tree. One pitch of face and crack up and left (5.8) to an obvious corner. Two more pitches of aid and free climbing lead to face climbing protected by chickenheads and a chimney system to the summit. Reference: Secor, The High Sierra, 3rd ed., pg 81.


From the summit, one rappel west into the Impala-Springbok gully, then scramble down the gully until you can traverse back to the start.
