P1: Slabs to slightly steeper dihedral crack, ledge and then up handcrack to large ledge belay on the saddle east and below the northwest mini pinnacle.

P2: East up easy cl.3 ramps and then short face to the slab summit.

Single, then double line sling rap.

BD4, MET PC4, 00 & 3 TCUs and WC 3 & 7 Rocks.


I'm not sure where that BD 4 was placed. I tried and it was too small to protect the short OW section on pitch 1. I'm also not sure where the hand crack was. You climb a short featured OW right before the belay ledge. You'd need a new BD 5 or 6 to protect it. It's easy though, I'd skip all the big gear. I left 2 stoppers for the rappel. There is also a slung constriction rappel anchor option. On that note, down climb pitch 2 and then do a 100' rappel down pitch 1. Mar 7, 2016
