Pitch 1: Start at the finger crack to left of Death Flake (see the new granite guide). Follow finger crack dihedral and climb onto the ledge using the right-hand flake. Continue to the bush on top of the ledge. Follow the ledge up to a fist jam crack. Once at the top, veer right to the top of the tree gully under the roof. Set up a gear belay station here.

Pitch 2: From this point, climb straight up and place a #3 camelot. Traverse across the face to the right and link in with the top portion of Death Flake and up to the belay tree.


The route sits to the left of Death Flake and the start is a small dihedral finger crack.


Standard rack and nuts.

Bring gear for belay station at the end of pitch one. Rappel out of tree on pitch two.
