Since there is no fixed protection on this climb, the exact line is a bit up to the leader. Pass several horizontal bands where protection can be placed. Other than that, just keep heading for the large pine tree about 20 feet right of a large, right-facing dihedral.

To descend, traverse climber's right 40 feet on a good ledge to a tree with rappel slings and rap 60-70' to the ground.

A seldom done second pitch continues up a left-facing flake (5.6) to the top of the formation.


Climb the face about 20-30 feet right of the big, right-facing dihedral and below a large pine tree.


Small cams up to 1". Bring a nut tool to help excavate for gear placements.
