Start up the steep crack system with spotty but good pro to a ledge below a corner. Make some tricky moves up the corner to a good ledge. Step left and make more hard moves up a left facing corner next to a coffin sized pillar.
Finish up easy climbing to a slung block.

In terms of climbing this was the most sustained and interesting of all the routes but its not the cleanest and you have to be patient with the pro.
Not for everyone.

Found a peg on the nice green wall to the right.


The route starts on the furthest right part of the crag facing south in a narrow gully.
Rap of slung block to ground.


Standard rack with small wires and a 4" cam.
