Description

"With five free parameters, a theorist could fit the profile of an elephant." - George Gamow 

On a wall with many apparently wandering lines, this takes a surprisingly direct line to the top - you don't actually need five free parameters here!

To the right of the central dihedral/chimney is a vaguely defined buttress featuring golden rock.  At the right hand edge of this buttress a shallow dihedral heads up and slightly left.  Belay at the top of this easy pitch.

The next pitch goes up a steeper left-facing dihedral, and up to the next big ledge system.

The third pitch continues up.

Location

Find the central dihedral, then scramble up to the right 75-100 feet.

Protection

Standard rack.
