The lower tier on Pilot knob is the longer of the two and holds several climbs, but these are lower quality in general than the top tier, perhaps suffering a lack of light that allows more lichen to grow there. We used this route to access the superior, albeit shorter routes on the upper tier.

Climb up a somewhat dirty dank corner past a little tree into a crack system on the slab above. Work up and right on a series of occasional cracks and flakes, following available gear and instinct, passing a shrub or two on their right sides before coming to a ledge with a large belay tree shared by Auto Pilot. Belay here or continue to scramble up to the base of Tier 2, below Stress Fracture, where there are 2 belay bolts.


This route lies at the right edge of the lower section of Pilot Knob. It ascends a right-facing corner at the right hand end of a roof up onto a slab split by a series of cracks and flakes, heading up and slightly right to the right edge of a ledge with a large belay tree.


A standard rack.
