Access: Begin at the grassy ledges used to access the minor dihedral.
Pitch 1: Traverse down and left across easy but loose terrain. Stop at a corner just before the climbing becomes 5th class. 4th class 100 feet.
Pitch 2: Traverse across 5th class terrain to a pair of small right facing corner/flakes. Climb to the top of the second and belay. 5.8 200 feet.
Pitch 3: Climb a small roof directly above then climb thin cracks to the left end of a curving roof. Traverse 15 feet left and belay below a thin flake. 5.9 150 feet.
Pitch 4: Climb up the thin flake then the left facing corner pitch of the major dihedral route. Climb it to a small roof. Face climb left (5.10) to a large flake. Climb the flake to a belay. 5.10 180 feet.
Pitch 5: Continue up the flake until it ends. Climb straight up the face to a roof. Under cling out right then down. Belay on a small ledge. 5.10a 90 feet.
Pitch 6: Climb the corner above on beautiful water worn chicken heads to a white sloping face. Clip the bolt and face climb up/left. Belay on a small ledge. 5.10 130 feet.
Pitch 7: Climb up the open book corner to the left until underneath the large right facing corner. Very thin finger tip liebacks lead to a finger crack and finally a roof into the corner. Under cling the roof, climb the corner and belay where the crack widens. 5.10d 160 feet.
Pitch 8: Continue up the corner to a ledge, lieback the corner above until it becomes a seam that heads out right toward the red corner. At this point step out of the corner to a flake on the left and climb it to a belay in blocks. 5.10a 160 feet.
Pitch 9: Climb through the blocks, then climb thin liebacks and face to a roof under a right facing corner. Pull the roof into a very clean finger crack/corner and climb it to its end. Traverse right to a large roof, turn it on the left and climb a left facing corner to the top. 5.10 200 feet.
Pitch 10: Traverse left, pull a small roof and head for the top. 5.7
