Start out as for Stress Fracture, but follow the left-angling arm of the crack to the left arete next to the chimney. Follow the arete to the anchors.


On the second tier of Pilot's knob: climb one of the lower tier routes to the big tree, then scramble 10 feet up to the dihedral (Touch and Go). This route is to the left of the dihedral.

Rap from the Stress Fracture anchor (described above).


Small stuff until the arete, then nothing. The anchor is one coldshut and one bolt/hanger/chain combo.
