P1: Move up and right past an undercling roof to a long flake crack, past a small tree. Head left up a ramp/ledges to the large ledge below the prominent p2 crack. Build an anchor. (5.8)

P2: Climb the phenomenal hand/fist crack, using face features as you go. Once above the crack, face climb past the hollow sounding flakes to the top (most placements are suspect in this section, climbing is about 5.6 though). Build an anchor or sling a large bush/tree. (5.9)


Start to the right of a large triangular block leaning against the wall.


Gear to 3". Small nuts and/or a 0.75 cam for above the crack on P2.

Descent: Two rappels. Midway chains are to rappellers right.

  • Note: There are two sets of midway rappel anchors. Use the ones lower and to climbers right.
