DescriptionThis is the central route on the formation, and the climbing is very nice and interesting.
Start on the left side of the crag, as for PBB. Continue right, past the start of the obvious PBB crack, to the start of an incipient crack, left of the edge of the lower face. Continue up (RPs or equivalent), to a horizontal break, straight up and past a single bolt to a stance with a funky gear placement (#1 or 2 Rock/wire). Move right a bit, and continue straight up to the finish with PBB.
From here, one can continue to the top of the formation (not recommended), and make two, single-rope raps from trees; the first being easy to find, the second down a grassy, low angle ramp to the east-ish.
Alternately, one can escape to the climbers right and belay. From here, the lower tree is down the grassy ramp.
