Description

Start same as Eowyn (it's actually better to start with the Eowyn overhang, as it is more interesting), then head up around the right side of the overhang. Go across the slab to a right-arcing corner, up this, and continue up until you can make a left traverse on steep blocky terrain (a bit of optimism here). Climb up to another right-facing corner and follow it (crux) until it ends, then climb a short blocky face to a nice exposed belay ledge on the arete. Make a belay.

P2 - the only real reason to break this up into two pitches is the exposure of the beautiful belay. Head up and left avoiding loose rock and lichen for 30 more feet on not as nice terrain (5.2 or so).

Rap with 2 ropes from the Eowyn pine tree

Protection

Normal Gunks rack. Small nuts are useful, nothing bigger than a #2.
