DescriptionGlue them fingernails down and get ready for some slab! Neat fins and knobs litter this route and are of general great quality. A very enjoyable climb and worth the effort to get there.
Climb the face up to the medium sized tree and ledge. 2 bolt anchor
Climb on up the steep slab following bolts and supplementing with nuts/cams. Near the top go slightly right to gain the belay ledge. Large pine tree is above you. Longest pitch on the route!
Climb up the steep pocketed face and head right angling for the large tree that you will set up as an anchor. Alternatively you can build a gear anchor just the left of the tree.
Climb up a water streak following bolts aiming for a small ledge with a tree on it.
The money pitch! Climb up and left to gain a large slab littered with chert knobs and other little features. Drop them heels and get your slab on and finish up on top of the large ledge system. Tree belay. Head right for the summit (5.5) or left towards the large tree to rappel.
