Description

P1 starts with easy face climbing up to a 15 foot polished crack and chimney. Belay from a ledge at the top of the chimney. 5.9 (40 meters)

P2 moves right onto a small dihedral and then right again across the face. Belay from obvious ledge. 5.6 (25 meters)

P3 two options, you can either move up the crack directly above the belay or you can head out to right onto the face where a second slightly easier crack is available. Belay from obvious ledge. 5.8 (25 meters)

P4 two options, you can either go up the crack directly above the belay that gradually becomes more thin and polished (this is the original route 5.10a). Alternatively, you can move right above the belay onto the slab for thin face climbing (5.10b variant). Both varients have the same 15 foot finish over a chimney. 5.10a (40 meters)

Rap down the route or climb the trail an additional 25 feet and walk off following the cairns to the Northeast to a short 30 meter rap.
