Start behind tree near the base. Climb straight up to a crack that starts above a small overhang. Lieback or Jam the crack to a stance. Either continue straight up, passing a bolt on the right, or traverse left to a flake and climb to top.


G rated. One bolt.

Pretty intimidating lead for the grade. No bolt either. Because of the slimey-ness of the first crack, I had to layback it. Great gear though. There's a stuck blue cam right before the horizontal break. After the horizontal ledge, it was unclear whether to go straight/right or left. Left looked easier, but I chose right, where an offwidth crack (I laybacked) gets you to the top. Hard to protect here but I slung a good wedged in block inside the crack.
