Micah was singing some 'Kool and the Gang' at the base as I started up this one, a reasonable climb with a section of good hand-crack.

Spot the downclimb, a diagonal crack leading up and right from the downclimb, and just right of that, a section of splitter handcrack covering the middle third of the rock, above a face and below a right-facing corner. Ascend the face and crack system on good rock with good gear to the top of the cliff.

To descend, scramble down and left (Northeast) to a notch in the rock, and then down the notch, back West to the base of the Northwest face.


This route lies ~ 1/2 to 2/3 of way up the back of the North Ridge and is in a shorter area just 10 meters or so to the right of a short low angle section of rock that allows one to gain the ridge-line of the East slab from the West via a non-technical ascent. That is the descent route....


A standard light rack with hand-sized protection. The descent is a scramble down.
