locate plead by walking to the "room" formation which is on the Listening Rock trail loop. when at the room you will see that there are two massive overhanging boulders. look at the boulder with the striking "tiger striped" quartzite lines. under this boulder is a slanted "disk like" slab with an aggressive overhang on one side, and the disc stands at 6.5 feet at the tallest point, then trending into a highball scramble at the top. this problem climbs from the lower right section of the disc overhang, then into the high, juggy scramble.
Sit-start low to the right of the disk, with a right hand on any quality pinch/jug that exists below the top lip of the diagonal disk, and with a left hand on a jagged, crescent crimp. paste a left foot on anything good and acquired a right heel-hook on a quality flat ledge under the boulder.
make a difficult, large, crux move out left to a giant (sharp if you dont commit), smooth, iron jug. gain good feet and follow out the overhang into the nice jugs to a highballish, but easy finish.
