START- Down and to the right of most climbs you'll see a terrible pointed rock that "aims" up the face. This is the "Death Penalty" rock. The First Ascentionists subsequently added a piton (about 2000, so now quite old) but even with this one needs an astute belayer.

P1 - Step off the block and up the face to a fixed anchor.


Down and near right end of cliff.


Tri Cams very useful in the horizontals.

Consideration to replacing the piton????
