DescriptionThis route is located on the upper tier.
Access this route by Rappeling from the top or by climbing Across The Universe (suggested).
P1 - Climb up the easy slab and when the rock steepens under the left facing flake get ready for some really fun climbing. Climb up using cool pockets and flakes, then establish in the right facing corner leading up to a small roof. At the roof you want to step left around it (crux) by making use of a small undercling. Once you make this move expect the climbing to return back to typical Mount Willard slab climb leading to the anchors. 160' 5.9
P2 - Continue up the slab on dirty run out climbing to a gap in the trees left of the last bolt. Belay in the trees. 50' 5.5
From here scramble up the easy 4th class slab to a look out and then follow the faint path to the summit for a rewarding view.
LocationThis route is one of the right most routes of the upper tier. Easily located by the beautiful left facing flake about twenty feet off the ground and a small roof and right facing corner just above it.
