Description

Start on the large jug feature near the center of the face and work straight up using small crimps and sidepulls. About halfway up, I trended to the right arete and finished up around the corner (without using the detached blocks). Staying true to the center is a project waiting to be done.

Location

Two Options:

1. Hike the west bluff trail (from the north) to the first main overlook after the gully. You're standing on the topout. Located in between "By Gully" and "Pearly Gate" in the Swartling Guide.

2. Hike directly up the bluff from Happy Go Highball

Protection

Pads. Landing is flat, but the climb is pretty tall and intimidating
