Description

Start at the lowest part of the crack systems. Work your way diagonally up along the cracks, using the rock ramp to your right as you progress toward the roof. The climbing here is not too difficult, save your energy for the roof.

Pulling the roof is the crux of the climb. There are reasonably solid jams to be had in the crack at the base of the roof, but it quickly flares as your clear the roof. You'll find a small side pull on the face high to the left, and one move past it a much larger side pull.

Once you've cleared the crux, squeeze yourself into the off width crack and grind your way to the top.

Location

This route is on the farthest right wall, the one closest to you as your approach from the trail. There is a dirt ramp below it which leads up to the top of the cliff. it can be identified by the braided crack system below, leading to a 3 foot roof, followed by a flaring offwidth on the second half.

Protection

There are 9 bolts and a bolted top anchor visible on the face of the climb.
