Description

This is a line on the far left side of the First Pew. It connects the first moderate looking features from the left arete/end. The length stated here is to the ridge crest. It's still a ridgecrest traverse to the downclimb. It is fairly clean, so it may have been ascended previously. If you know of a prior ascent, let me know and I'll correct this.

P1. Climb up behind a fallen tree to gain a rightward-angling ramp about 25 feet up. Move up at a thinner crack feature. Face climb just to the left of the crack (crux) to gain some good knobs. Shorter folks may find this bit more difficult. Continue upwards and angle slightly right near the top. Belay at a decent-sized tree, 215', 5.7 PG-13. Be sure to use long slings to reduce rope drag.

P2. Move right and gain a 3rd class gully, move up and right on an easy face to gain the ridge crest. Traverse another 100 feet to a tree just above the gully behind this strata. Downclimb 10 feet, 160', 5.0.

Protection

Gear to a #3 Camalot with perhaps extra smaller cams, long slings.
