DescriptionPitch 1 (5.9) - Climb up a dirty but easy chimney to a ledge. Continue up a harder section to the belay on a large ledge/alcove.
Walk around to the NE face (morning sun).
Pitch 2 (5.9) - Climb up to a ledge with a bush. Continue up the improbable but fun face, fingers to hands and a step right to a short OW. Belay on the ledge above. (This pitch may differ from the FA route, we weren't sure).
Pitch 3 (5.8) - Climb off the ledge through fun blocky terrain and one bolt. Sign the summit register!
Descent - Make one 160 ft. rappel back to your packs - shitty. An intermediate anchor would make this better and possible with one rope.
