This is a steep, thin face that finishes with a small finger crack. A very high quality climb by Rocky Butte standards. Probably best as a top-rope as the bolts are old with homemade hangers on them. Tim Olsen's book describes the bulge as the crux but at 6' tall I found that to be only 5.10 climbing. For me the crux was the last 10' of face moves leading up to the crack. A sequence of enduro balance side-pull and crimping that left me out of gas for the easier moves after I reached the crack.
Rappel from a tree anchor and the bolt at the top to a newer 2 bolt anchor about 20' from the ground. Establish an anchor and climb up and left following bolts past a bulge and finish via a small crack.
