Interesting moves in a great position.

Up the four-foot-wide ridge, mostly in its left half, making abundant use of its outside left corner for hands (and sometimes feet). For the first few feet off the ground it helps to put the left foot on the slab to the left of the ridge.
. (Variation more interesting: Start without using the slab to the left).

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 2016. Be prepared when climbing to navigate around protruding trees and branches, and dealing with holds slippery with grass, lichen, moss, dirt).


At the base of the four-foot wide ridge comes down South from the top of the Nose.


To set up Top-Rope, see Description of The Nose area.
Protection for Trad leading is unknown and likely inadequate.
