This enjoyable climb starts in a rhododendron nook about 20' left of Lichen Worms. Climb the low angle slab to the moss ledge under the left-facing mini-dihedral. If you want, plug a .5-1" cam in the dihedral on the way to the high first bolt, then solve some trickiness to gain the fun slab above. The high-step crux comes near the top, going directly through a distinctly rippled and ridged horizontal band--many skirt this worthwhile move via an easier 5.9 passage to the right.


20 feet uphill from Lichen Worms. This is the rightmost of 3 bolted routes on the face just up from Lichen Worms.


Mostly bolts. Bring a few cams. Bolted anchor.
