Description

To the right of the the Charlie Fowler mixed route, the South Face, is a nice clean plaque of rock split by a big grassy ledge about 200 feet up. This route climbs a crack system up the left side of the plaque.

P1. Climb up a shallow, left-facing dihedral, stepping left into a face crack after 40 feet or so. Follow this to easier ground, belaying before the large ledge, 5.10-.

P2. Continue to the ledge, cross it, and climb easy ground to a nice ledge below a fetching finger crack.

P3. Climb the aforementioned finger crack then into an overhanging dihedral, and continue up to a pleasant belay ledge at 120 feet, 5.10.

P4. Move up about 10 feet to a ledge, and move right on it until a short 5.7 face allows access to the next higher ledge. Move left on this until below a groove.

P5. Follow the groove until it steepens and it is possible to step right onto a ledge where a belay can be set up, 5.9.

P6. Step right, and climb the steep, right-facing dihedral to the top of the wall, 5.10-.
