Description

Climb up the blocky right-facing corner to reach a pair of vertical seams/thin cracks leaning left. Be aware there is another pair of cracks to climber's left; these are not cleaned at all, and the cracks are wider than this route's.
Follow seams/cracks up through a couple steep spots to easier slab leading to the top. There are a couple run-outs on the easy terrain as one reaches the top, but they are not difficult.

Location

Begin on the ledge that lies about 40' up the cliff along its right side. Look for a blocky, right-facing corner almost directly above the lower scramble notch used to reach this ledge from the base of the cliff. This corner is about 30' climber's left of the overhang near the right end of this section of cliff.

Protection

Standard Adk. Trad Rack. No fixed gear or anchors.
