Description [Suggest Change]
The route is a bit grainy, not terribly so but definitely does make it a bit spicy. It is a long route, however the start is very low angle so technically you aren't climbing for 165 feet. This isn't a destination climb so don't hike out here to do just this route, the roofs on the South face look a lot more appealing but much harder. And Bighorn Dome, Cornerstone & Poodlesmasher are not far from here either. If you are looking for a quiet day with zero crowds this may be your ticket. Check out Page 331 of the Randy Vogel J-Tree guide printed by Falcon.
Location [Suggest Change]
Follow the obvious line up the West face. There is a walk off on the back but it is 4th class, maybe even 5th class with a spicy blind step down and a sharp chimney squeeze. An option to consider if you want to throw a rope down and TR instead.
Protection [Suggest Change]
There is one bolt, but it is rusted and is not reliable at all. You can get pro in the crack (it is consistently #1 Camalot sized all the way up) the crack is a bit shallow though so it definitely won't eat gear.
