1st climb ever. Ascent=15 min. Descent=45 min. ...


This route starts just to the right of the base of Six Pence, which is not at all clear in Ruckman's book. From either direction along the wall, scramble up a short talus slope to the base. I used the bolted short first pitch as an easy top-rope to teach a new climber, but more convenient places could probably be found. DESCENT: Scramble down to the left from the top of first pitch. From the top of the second pitch, walk off to the west and then take the main path down to the north.


Extremely over-bolted but short first pitch to a ledge with a messy bush. This is ok as the bolts look very old. Decent pro is available for the second pitch - small cams and nuts.

I could not see the anchors that I had reported earlier. Although, I may not have climbed high enough.

I never saw an anchor at the top of P2. It gets pretty vague up there. I ended up putting in a belay at a ledge with a fixed cam and maybe one old bolt or pin and then doing one more 5.easy pitch to the top. There are probably 5-6 different easy ways to go.
