Description [Suggest Change]

Look for this isolated pillar between the dam buttress and upper Dam buttress. The route climbs the slabby face with thin seams and a hand crack. A little dirty. Start left of center, move up thin seams, small cams and a fixed pin, then into hand crack which ends at roof. Run it out above roof on good side pulls to top of pillar and tree belay.

Location [Suggest Change]

The fish ladder pillar is about five minutes up the hill, slightly down stream from the dam buttress. Either rap off tree or hike and scramble off the back.

Protection [Suggest Change]

One fixed pin, thin gear down low, medium cams up high. Tree anchor
