Description 

Climb up the crack in the flared corner to a good rest stance at some blocks below an overlap. Use the off-width crack to climb over the overlap to a ledge atop a large flake. Creep left to a perch at the end of the ledge. Step left and climb up the improbable, mossy, dirty off-width(crux) to a ledge with thick trees below a small unprotected slab. Avoid the slab by pushing through the trees until it is possible to gain the top. Belay from tree(s) on top.

Location 

The route starts below a triangular flake formation in a flared corner that contains a crack.

Descend by rappelling or walking off to the right.

Protection 

Standard rack. Large cams helpful.
