Named "Ant Hill" for the ants that reside in the rock near the start. Sit start with low feet placed where you're comfortable. Try to follow the crack to the pocket at the end. Reposition and place your feet carefully to reach a pocket for your right hand. Try to avoid the flake in between; I fear it may break. Position your feet again in the most solid spots and reach above your head to a pocket for your left hand. This, I believe, would be the crux move and is a blind reach. From there follow your hands with your feet to the top. The last hold is a right hand on the peak of the rock.

After topping out, there is an easy down climb at the far end of the rock. Crash pads and spotting are still recommended.


On the right, after the first split to the right, in the trail.


Pads are good. It's hard to spot. The best protection is flagging one foot out on the rock behind you to wedge between the two. Know your limits, but don't be afraid to climb it.
