Pitch 1 – work leftwards along a ramp sort of system past a 5.8 corner to a belay ledge. This is sometimes done as just one pitch.

Pitch 2 – 5.10a (9 R). Diagonal a bit leftwards along a groove to a bolt and belay at the base of an obtuse left facing corner.

Pitch 3 – climb up the corner, then run it out on fairly easy terrain to the first bolt and up the steeper bit to the top.


This is located to the right of Tree Route below an obvious, big, horizontal roof.

Your description is a bit lacking. The first pitch you mention is the "weenie way" as the first pitch actually starts up a shallow, left-facing corner past a single bolt at mid-height. This pitch is the crux of the route, and also the best pitch of the climb (bring RPs).

Second pitch is well protected (by Platte standards) and actually climbs up and right to belay below a left-facing corner.

Third pitch is the hairy one, either climbing up and placing a piece in the corner or traversing straight from the belay out left to a distant first bolt. Climb up past several bolts before running it out up and right to the third belay. Rap from here. May 10, 2013
