Description

This one is much better than anticipated. What looks like a wide nightmare on poor rock turned out to be very enjoyable. Face climbing around most wide sections (my favorite), perfect natural belays, amazing last pitch, and a sweet walk-off.
P1: 5.10, 150' Cruise up to the small right facing chimney. Pull bulge and continue 'til you reach a nice ledge with a pin. Small gear for anchor.
P2: 5.10-, 65' Go for the large crack off the climber's left side of the belay ledge. Bust left onto face before horizontal. Stop at an even bigger belay ledge down and left of the large overhang. Medium gear for anchor.
P3: 5.10, 70' Pull final overhang and enjoy an atypical needles finger/hand crack to the top.

Location

Start between prominent buttress (on left) and very large boulder. Finish on obvious high point on E face. Navigate your way back towards visible hiker's trail to the W.

Protection

Doubles to #3, single #4, nuts
