The road into the Honeycombs is still closed (BLM Closure). Heavy logging activity continues after Archie Creek Fire.
The climb begins with easy climbing on some dirty rock where it leads to a large platform. There is a bolted anchor here if you would like to belay your partner up so they have a better place to belay from.
The climb then leads up a slightly overhung face. A bolt line of glue in's lead straight up the face where numerous holds and foot placements are present, but the climbing is quite sustained. A second line of bolts goes to the right, which is a 10b alternative. Both lines finish at a bolted anchor with a nice belay station.
The final pitch has a mix of slab and roof mantles. Follow the ridge all the way to the summit where a bolted anchor marks the end of the climb.
To get down, you can either walk off the North Comb or you can rappel down the route. There is a rappel station at each belay platform.
