A few face moves gets you into the dihedral. Move up and left past some old tattered slings and a bail anchor w/ rap ring. From here, climb the flaring, intermittent cracks (crux) for about 15' to easier climbing. Once to the large bush, move right and up to the top. Gear anchor.


Start on a large flat rock with a large boulder to lookers left. Looking up, you will be under a large right facing dihedral with a little bush in it.


Gear to 3". Offset stoppers and cams useful.

Rappel "Expectations" route 60' to the West. 70m rope gets you down in one. If shorter, there are midway rappel chains.
