Description

We split this into two pitches due to some loose rock reaching the low first ledge. This could easily be combined into one pitch.

Begin up a chossy section to a large ledge (our first pitch, 5.7) which is at the base of the obvious crack up the northwest face . From the ledge, climb through a wide roof (crux). Once through the roof, an enjoyable hand crack (one fixed Pika Toucan) leads to the top.

A single 60M rope rappel will get you to the ground.

Protection

A single rack up to BD C4 #5. Doubles in hand sizes.
