From the ledge, climb up cracks and flakes, then continue up the slab above, connecting to another series of cracks leading to a brushy shelf under a huge roof system at rope's end.
This route is a Jekyll/Hyde mixture of good climbing and bad, with a lot of runouts along the way. We wanted to access the tasty overhang above, but the late-season sun didn't allow us enough time to grapple with it.


Near the left side of the highest point of the base of the main face, clamber up a brushy ramp to a tree ledge with a large rectangular flake.
Descent is tricky without double ropes; we made 2 off uninspiring trees (read: saplings) to return to the start.


Standard rack and gumption. Tri-cams may help alleviate some of the longer runouts.
