Description

P. 1: Climb easily to the top of the pillar, which can be slung for protection. Step up and arrange gear, move left and up to good holds, then hand-traverse vigorously back right, clipping a bolt along the way. Another move or two leads to a ledge and low-angled slab (optional intermediate belay at the Velvet Underground anchor on the right behind the twin birches). Follow the easy slab to a right-facing corner on the headwall and follow it (crux) to a bolted anchor on the big ledge. (5.8+, 90')

P. 2: Up the open slab. Trend left to join P. 2 of Goat Yoga below the headwall, or right to the big corner right of the headwall, and belay from the Goat Yoga second pitch anchor. (5.6, 150') Rappel Goat Yoga, or follow its third pitch up to the big pine ledge.

A single 70m rope works fine for the Goat Yoga rappels, but probably won't quite reach from the second Goat Yoga anchor to the first pitch anchor of this route.

Location

A white pillar about 12' high forms a left-facing corner at the start; twin birch trees should be visible on a ledge to the right about 40' up.

Protection

Light rack to 2" with mostly small cams, one bolt, double runner to sling the top of the starting pillar. Bolted first pitch anchor on the big ledge, accessible by scrambling if you want to toprope. Extra runners to manage rope drag if continuing up the second pitch slab. A 70m rope is nice for the rappels.
