Route description

The start of the route is on the left side of the formation, to the right of a gully that leads to the top, on a ledge you can scramble to from below. You will see a prominent black streak above leading down to the start (see picture).

Pitch 1 (35 meters, 5.10a): start on a ledge to the right of a small detached pinnacle, around the corner from a shallow verticle cave. Follow the steep, slightly overhung, small finger crack up past a small roof, continue up and right to a good ledge.

Pitch 2 (25 meters, 5.8): go left up a flake from belay ledge, to the left of the black streak, steep with good holds, top out on blocky summit, 10 meters away from the hiking trail.

Gear: single rack to 4"

Descent: walk off down the hiking trail from the summit.

I did a lot of cleaning on lead. You might have to dig a bunch of moss or plants out to find holds in cracks. Doesn't seem to get climbed that often Jul 30, 2017
