Traverse left to right under a roof. The traverse is the crux of the route, and is often caked with a white fungus-y substance. Once you hit the ledge, the obtuse corner and face that leads to the top is cruiser.

This route is seldom climbed, but it's worth it, especially for beginners at placing gear. The hard part is down low, and can be completed with a boulder spot if need be, and the top is quite moderate and enjoyable.


Just downhill to climber's right of Burning Calves. Look for a hand-traversing crack under a roof roughly 8-9 feet off the ground.


Up to #4. No bolted anchor. Take something with you to build one at the top. There is a tree right at the lip of the cliff that usually has a piece of rope or cord to rap from. Use at your own risk, or be prepared to leave something. If you see tat up there, be a good steward and cut it off and pack it out.
