DescriptionThe 1st pitch climbs short, broken, right-facing dihedrals and face.
Pitch 2 goes up right-facing dihedrals to the ledge.
Pitch 3 goes up the runout face, then up the ramp towards the summit.
LocationZig zag up the gully and head towards the left face of the formation which has a obvious, right-facing corner up in the middle of the wall.
Walk off the top and go left (walker's left) toward the west/southwest and gain a grassy gully for the descent. Go down this until you are at a small tower (that was right beside you when you started the climb). Go around it on the low side, and traverse back to the base of your climb. Go back down the long awful gully.
Another option that I have not explored would be to take everything with you, and at the top descend the slope to the north and walk out that way.
