Description

Start up grainy bulge ledges by threading through some uncooperative tree branches to gain an acute dihedral crack, which turns into double cracks halfway up that dihedral.  Wrap up and right to finish atop a big shoulder ledge,  Approx 50 ft if stopping here, to afterward descend the steep ledges on the south facing backside.  Or continue up via a right slanting handcrack with poor feet (felt about 5.9) to wrap further around (mind the rope drag) to gain the summit.  An additional star and approx 70 ft in the latter case.

Location

The prominent dihedral of this climb faces Sail Away, and is located 10 ft to climber's right of My First First.

Protection

Pro to 3.5", gear anchor.
