DescriptionInteresting variety of moves and rock situations.
Step right under overlap, use undercling to help traverse farther right, then up crack (partly shared with "Dome Left" route) to its top. Turn right and finish onto top of dome block up its left face, perhaps using a bit of the arete.
Warning: The rock on and around this route has not been climbed much yet, and much of the rock is still breakable and loose -- so the belayer and other people should stand far away from underneath the climber.
. . . (Lots of vegetation on this rock as of 2015. Be prepared when climbing to navigate around protruding trees and branches, and dealing with holds slippery with grass, lichen, moss, dirt).
