Description

Probably would deserve 4 stars but the vegetated beginning detracts from that. Each pitch is thought provoking for it's grade and all have some fun gear finding. Crux doesn't come until right below the summit ;)

1) 5.8 70' Start towards left side of wall, navigate the veggie and aim for small roof above pine tree sapling. Natural anchor.

2) 5.10+ 70' Continue up right leaning crack that leads into short stem box. Tricky gear. Build belay at two pitons just above the box, supplement pins with small gear.

3) 5.11- 60' To the right of belay, carefully climb up hollow flake. RP/micro cam placement right above flake. Pull large roof above. Keep following crack to two bolts straight ahead. Natural anchor.

Location

Rappel off webbing slung summit on the backside into gully. 80m is nice here. Scramble the rest of the way to the packs.

Protection

Double rack up to #1
Micro nuts/cams
