Description 

You'll find this route on the left side of the northwest face, starting from ground level and just left of a boulder.

Solo up low-angled, featured face (wandering about a bit can make it less difficult) aiming for the middle of a prominent horizontal crack which cuts across the face. Gain the crack (3" cam here) and then continue up the upper face passing one bolt and the crux friction moves. Chain anchor on top for belay/rap.

Reasonably protected, even for those without a lot of experience, and fun on decent to good rock. A worthwhile route if in the area. One star out of five.

Protection 

bolt, 3" cam, bolted anchor/rap
