Interesting three-dimensional climbing.

Start way down at the bottom of a gap between detached rock an main wall. Then up the arete, and finish in the pure corner with the pure crack.
. (Variation easier: In the upper section, step right into a broken corner and up that to the top).

Descent: Rappel two-bolt anchor above top of right-hand corner crack.
Or down-climb (first traversing south) as for Top-Rope access, see below.

? Name sounds strange? Still waiting for the FA party so supply their name.

warning: The rock on and around this route has not been climbed much yet, and much of the rock is still breakable and loose -- so the belayer and other people should stand far away from underneath the climber.


Obvious set of three adjoining corners each with a crack at its top, on the inside curve of the wall, just right of a big outside corner facing right, which is just right of where the base of the cliff goes downward steeply.

Top-Roping: Can get access to set up top anchor from big tree by first climbing the route Chasing the Butterfly, then traverse left ... first up and down into another gully, then across the top of a thick fallen tree-trunk, then exit the gully right on a ledge, roughly horizontal on this until above the big tree, then down to it.

Leading: Protection for Trad leading is unknown.

No fixed anchor or bolts as of 2016.
