Description 

Start on the climbers left/east edge of the face. Scramble up obvious short ramp to the base of a short crack/corner and build belay.

P1-From atop the ramp head up a short corner then trend left up and out face on thin holds and dubious protection to a good horizontal. Continue left over a bulge to gain the main East ledge system. Build belay at tree.

P2-Start left of the tree. Climb up through a series of overlapping flakes on thin gear to a small ledge in a left facing corner. Build belay.

P3-Climb up from the belay through a band of loose rock to a large roof. Aid out roof on hooks, then up a left facing corner past a fixed pin that leads to the large cave. Build belay on sparse gear once you enter the cave.

Descent - Traverse right across cave to a bolted rap station. 150' to the ground.
