DescriptionP1. Start in the corner under a massive overhang at the base of the hill, on the Valley Trail coming down from Witch's Brew.
P1 Climb the corner to a small tree and traverse left a few feet to the center of a black, vertical or slightly overhanging face. Climb the face (crux) to the grassy ledges above and in another 50-60 feet you'll find a wonderful belay ledge with one solid bolt and a great crack for trad gear. P2 Climb the overhang to the right of the belay, then move left and climb the left of the arete to the summit. If you stay on the side of the arete facing the river, the moves are hard 5.8, very steep. The are many opportunities to escape to the left on p2 of this climb making it substantially easier. But then, you aren't on Chickies Direct.
