Start in the center of the Pit, at the base of the obvious crack. The crux comes early on a lieback finger flake, protected by small gear. Another crux is found in the somewhat wide and awkward crack that follows. After working this flaring section, continue up on easier ground as the crack comes to an end. Easy slab climbing, protected by small gear in the occasional seam, leads to the anchor ledge. Rappel to descend.


Gear to 3", bolted anchor
