This fun line leads to a great summit! Start by throwing the rope over the step/shoulder. Have the second belay on the opposite side as the leader jugs to the anchor. P II, Aid to within 12 feet of the cap rock then free climb to the top. The summit is small and under cut. Prudent to go one at a time.


See Sat. Photo.
