From Eric Bjornstad's 1997 Desert Rock: [P0: Climb a 50' 5.6 pitch to gain access to the top of the pedestal.] P1: Climb a splitter crack up the center of the south face. P2: Continue up and left through a rotten chimney to better rock, with face climbing to the summit.
Location and Descent
The route is the obvious crack line with anchors splitting the south face.
Descent: Traverse to the higher north summit to find the rap anchors at the top of Swiss Gentleman. Do one 100' rap to the first set of anchors and a ledge. Rap 150' to the ground.
3 sets of friends #1-#3.5; Camalots #4 or #5 for pitch 2 and bottom of pitch 1.
