BETA PHOTO: Upper portion, 5.8 Y'er Ass
This good pitch is generally a hand crack, trending right, on the west face of the larger western formation. There are two cruxes, both where the climbing goes right to avoid climbing straight over small overhangs. Do not use a block to the right of the second traverse, keep feet left. The crux moves are significantly easier with good footwork. There is a block, after the first crux in the crack, which looks suspect but is solid. In fact, one does pull on this large flake to continue upward.
The climb is the left crack on the west face of the formation. This crack is right of a clean face without cracks.
Standard trad rack to two inches including about eight two foot slings. Small wired are not needed. There is an anchor and chains before the loose ridge. Rap the route with a 60m rope.
