Interesting moves up short faces and corners, separated by ledges.

Basically .. climb three feet right from the dihedral / V-chimney route the whole way up. Start to the right of the dihedral / V-chimney. Next aim up to just left of the obvious tree (easier if deviate right along the way), and up the inside corner which forms the R side of the overhanging bulge. Next up a ways to just R of below the cap stone. Some delicate moves rising left 4-5 feet, then up to the top just L of the cap stone.

warning: The rock on and around this route has not been climbed much yet, and much of the rock is still breakable and loose -- so the belayer and other people should stand far away from underneath the climber - (and if possible, behind a large tree).

. . . (Lots of vegetation on this rock as of 2016. Be prepared when climbing to navigate around protruding trees and branches, and dealing with holds slippery with grass, lichen, moss, dirt).


Three feet right of the obvious (low-right-side) narrow dihedral / V-chimney, and left of obvious tree about six feet up from the ground.
