Description

Start right of a fir tree (the fir tree is actually touching the rock). Mantle up and face climb through some friable rock. Follow a bolt line up to the roof. Watch for birds and "what have yous" in the crack that is under the roof. Clip a bolt that is at the roof and pull up and over. There is a bolt that is back about 2 feet from the roof as you pull over. Take a #1 and #2 Camalot to use in the hand crack above the roof that you will move though to get to the anchors.

Location

Look for the fir tree that is abutting the rock. The route starts to the right of this tree.

Protection

6 quickdraws and #1 and #2 Camalots. Bring something for the 2 bolt anchor.
