Description

The start is obvious -- near a tier of jagged blocky ledges. Climb past these along the large corner above. The cleanest route climbs on the rampy face to the slight right of the vegetated corner.

Pitch one to a big tree on a big ledge about 100' up. Pitch two climbs the slot/chimney directly above to a bolted anchor. A third optional fourth class pitch takes one to the top for a great view. A steep vegetated walk down is possible a hundred yards or so to the north (left). Alternately skip the last pitch and rap from the tree to the bolts and then down (but note warnings from those who have both gotten their rope stuck and missed the view).

Location

About 25 yards up and left of the "hard up" route in the corner that forms the left side of the 'Sign Face.'

Protection

Big tree anchor at top of first pitch; bolt anchor for second pitch; bring usual rack for protection between the anchors. Mostly solid rock, but use care in places.
