This route mounts the crest of the Tsumani Wall on the left side, joining a nice crack that leads left past a sappy pine tree to the base of a separate buttress. This new face is followed all the way to the top which is much higher than you would think.  It's a very nice long moderate climb, with great position, and lots of superb moves on killer rock.  The gear can feel a bit tricky at some key moments.  Getting to the crack is a little hairball for the grade!


Straight up from the chain-anchor at the base of the cliff.   Find a "triangular" cleft at the lip of the roof and note the leftward-trending crack.


A single rack would suffice for some leaders, but others may want a few extra pieces, especially small stuff. If you have tricams, go ahead and bring 'em.
