DescriptionA varied excursion up an obvious line.
P1 starts in an obvious right facing dihedral under a large roof. Exit the dihedral left before reaching the roof then move back right in to crack. Finish on a nice belay ledge to the left with a small tree.
P2 From the small tree move down the ledge a bit and then up a right to nice right facing flake. Or head up the short right facing corner above the tree with a stuck hex and piton in it and make some dicey slab moves over to the flake on the right. Trend right until right below a notch in the roof. I set up a awkward belay literally sitting on a bush.
P3 Head up through the notch and continue on easy ground (intersecting El Whampo) to another belay below a roof.
P4 Exit left through the roof or right up a short slab.
P5 Easy climbing to the shoulder. Climb up a bit on the shoulder to gain an exit into the decent gully.
