DescriptionA classic. Much, much better climbing than it looks like from below. Old-school funky trad climbing. Do it!
Scramble up to a small sloping ledge on jugs. (It may be wise for your belayer to anchor in, as the stance is awkward.) Place some gear to prevent yourself from falling and dragging down your belayer. Make some moves above a ledge (don't fall), find jugs, and fire in some small cams into what seems to be piton scars. Climb up to a square block, and pass it on the right on jugs (exposed). Once on top of the block, step left into a small corner, place gear and fire the crux. Clip a bolt, then a fixed pin to easier terrain. Clip another bolt (optional), then make a few moves to a decent ledge. From here, clip a weirdly placed pin, or clip a bolt higher up (ledgefall potential). Next, figure out how to get to the bolted anchors. (Straight up or right, you decide...) Exposed finish!
