The east face is closed to climbing year-round due to possible sensitive/endangered plant species.
The NW face and West face routes remain open.
See Closure section below for more details.
P1 5.8 Straightforward march up mostly blocky slabs. If continuing upwards, step left to bolt-and-pin belay on ledge. Otherwise rappel from two bolt anchor. A 70m rope is required to rappel from here to the ground.
P2 5.9 Head left towards the A-shaped feature. Cool moves over the flexing flakes... head more or less straight, not left to the tree belay, but up to 2-bolt anchor.
P3 5.9 Routefinding adventure. Straight up arete with fun moves, then scrambling to a stance at a short dihedral with pins. Pull through this and scramble leftward to a big grassy ledge. Continue up and left to another ledge with two rusty pins in the back corner.
P4 5.9 Traverse left, then up some easy terrain. Crux is getting on to, across, and over a slab section protected by a bolt and a piton. Fun stuff. There is a small grassy ledge a bit above this, or you can keep going up some nice rock until meeting the SE Face Route.
P5: Join the SE route for an easy scramble to the top, then walk off.
