P1: Climb the low angle, easy terrain up through the mossy cracks. Near a tree with a bail anchor on it, head up and left into the wide chimney like feature. Gear belay under the roof in the alcove (big gear/chockstone). 120' (5.5)

P2: There are several moderate variations on this 2nd pitch. This way seemed most straightforward. Head up and right through the roof, and climb the steep crack (crux) to easier ground, past yet another bail anchor, to the top. The "Ski Tracks" aren't as good as they look from the ground. 3" cams good to have on this pitch. Gear belay/sling large blocks. 120' (5.8-)

Descent: Walk off climbers right.


20' right of Spare Rib in a mossy crack system.


Doubles 0.3-3 one 4" piece, single set of stoppers. Triple 3's would be nice. Gear belays.
