Description

Pitch 1 - start from the base of the large chimney slot to the right of The Tombstone. Climb the leftmost hand crack through lichenous rock and out left past 2 bolts. Continue straight up to stay out of the large(4-6") corner. Pass a few more bolts on the short headwall above and step around right to the belay ledge (5.9+).

Pitch 2 - power up past 2 bolts to gain the beautiful, leftward- leaning finger crack that climbs up to the 2-bolt anchor 90' above(5.10a).

Pitch 3 - follow the line of bolts over wildy featured rock past a few tricky cruxes up to the 2-bolt anchor at the large ledge (5.10b).

Protection

Each pitch requires gear placement. The 3rd pitch is mostly bolted with just a few placements. An assortment of nuts and a single rack of cams should suffice.... 2-bolt anchors at the end of each pitch allow for a direct rappel descent. To climb to the summit would require another pitch at 5.5 for about 150-200 more feet....
