Description

Follow the shoulder-deep fist-to-thin hands crack to the narrow ledge 8 feet below the top of the rock. Traverse a step left to pull a few finger jams to the top.

Location

The route runs up a free-standing pillar of rock. The easiest approach from the end of the trail is to scramble down into the slots among the rocks and exit right (northeast) from the slot that separates the pillar from the rest of the rocky outcropping. Follow the wall left to find this north-facing wall (it's in the shade all day).

Descent: scramble off the south side of the pillar into the approach route.

Protection

Standard rack of cams and stoppers. While the crack is fist-sized for more than half the route, there are plenty of fissures to the right of the crack to slot stoppers or small cams.

It is also possible to scramble to the top of the pillar from the trail side (south) to build a TR anchor, if that's your flavor.
