This is a short, exciting face climb. It is on a small formation just below The Pirate. Scramble down and traverse in from the left. Unprotected crux moves lead up to the first bolt. A good spot (tough to arrange on the exposed starting ledge) would help you if you fell here. The moves above are fun and well-protected. The climb finishes along the trail by the base of The Pirate.


Gear for the belay at the bottom and at the top. I don't remember whether I was able to place any gear on the actual climb.

Fun face climbing on this; the crux is a boulder problem right at the start, which seem contrary to the "R" rating.
