Description

1) Move up a right trending ramp, then back left under (or over) a bulge towards the tree 35' up. Suggest you belay off the cold shuts, but you could link this into the second pitch (35ft). This short section feels more like 5.7 moves -- Rox Salt may offer an easier variation for this section.

2) Continue to the right, up a left-facing corner. This eventually turns into a vegetated ramp. At the end of the ramp there is a larger tree with slings and rap rings, at the base of an obvious chimney. (65ft)

3) Move up and right through the great chimney, possibly moving onto the flake for a period. The Barnes guidebook notes that it ends on the summit, but the obvious end seems to be a large tree at the end of a short traverse, that allows a single 70m rap to the ground (probably even doable with a 60m)

Going up to the summit ridge would be a 4th class scramble that would be smart to protect.

Location

Begins directly underneath the tree to the right of the two cold-shuts at the end of Really Flakey / at the top of Rox Salt.

Protection

Standard Rack, Bolts & Trees for anchors.
