DescriptionThis is the first established route encountered as one reaches the base of the West Slab.
P1: scramble up a small gully to a tree, and begin climbing to the right of an obvious bolted line (route #2 on the first slab). The line ascends a dihedral that becomes a flake, and then goes on up the face to a 2-bolt belay/rap station.
P2: climb up and to the right, into the large dihedral, where it is possible to traverse right on to a vertical face with large footholds. There are 2 bolts visible on this face (see photo). After traversing the face, gain the arete proper, which is easy but very exposed climbing. Follow the arete up past some natural gear and a couple of more bolts to the 2-bolt rap station.
