Description

The climb takes the right one of the two obvious cracks on the north side. A chossy start gains a much cleaner crack 20 feet up. Up this to the ledge 70 feet up. Three bolts gain the saddle, the white caprock boulder and a two-bolt anchor. Rappel 85 feet.

We aided this. The crack is now much cleaner and should go free, (fingers->thin hands->hands) up to the ledge just below the summit.

Location

The climb takes the right one of the two obvious cracks on the north side.

Protection

Cams: 1 Green Alien; 2-3 sets from yellow Alien up to #2, Gold Camalot; 1 each larger Camalots.
Nuts: small selection medium-large.
Pitons: 1 hand-placed standard-angle piton (a fat-baby would work). Probably optional.
