Start with a short, steep and unprotected sequence at 5.8+ up to a lower-angled but still difficult slab. Climb the slab to easier ground above until you come to some loose-looking blocks under a steep light-colored face. Climb the short face (crux) to a ledge with a small pine tree, and make an anchor there. 

Use the bolted anchors over Grease Gun Groove to rappel.


At a steep face, ~10' left of the bulge of Grease Gun Groove.


Crux is very well protected. The easier climbing at the start is unprotected at about 5.8.

a nice one-move-wonder bouldery crux with fantastic gear at your chest. The unprotectable 5.8 start earns this a PG13. Great climb for those looking to tick a 5.10+ trad lead. Jun 29, 2011

I have followed this climb twice in the last two weeks. It's a hard start for a short person (5'2"), but totally doable. I probably do the crux differently too. One move wonder...fun climb. Worth doing. May 29, 2013
