P1- Climb fun chimney very far right on the wall past a small tree. Climb onto knobby slab with thin pro in corner. Bust a spicy and fun 5.8 move left and over onto another knobby slab, climb into corner and belay.

P2- Climb fun corner up to flake, move left around flake (5.9) into fun corner with knobs for feet. Get to a ledge.

P3- From ledge, head up to a large left leaning 5.10 layback corner. #4 camalot possibly makes this less scary. Continue to large ledge and belay.

P4- Climb beautiful white rock with knobs up to a small roof with small gear under roof. Bust a 5.10 move over roof and continue up crack and knobs. Meet up with ridge and 4th class to summit


Double rack and some small widgets(grey metolius, purple c3, etc.)Possibly a #4 for Pitch 3.
A nice moderate route up one of the most beautiful features around. Rock quality is great, this thing just needs more traffic to remove some lichen. May 22, 2015

Stellar climbing the whole way, chicken-heads right where you want them. I'd bring a wire brush to take care of pesky lichen on some crux holds. I got the worst rope drag I've ever had on the 5.9, gotta get doubles next time! May 21, 2013
