A hard start protected by two bolts leads to an easier section with gear placements. After pulling on to a ledge, move left to finish on a steep face with some neat pocket features, protected by two bolts. You could yard through the start and do this at 5.8 A0.


There are a few small buttresses above the campsite. This is on the middle buttress, or the second from the left. On a west-facing wall, the profile of the climb is visible from camp. Easiest to hike up and left from camp to gain the base.


4 bolts with a few gear placements in the middle (#.4 Camalot and a #1 or #2 Camalot should be good enough for most). Two bolt anchor.
