Description 

Lots of fun moves on flakes.

Start up the left side of the triangle. Then traverse right about six feet (across the route Dragon's Rib). Up a vertical line of flakes.

Across a gentle section, then up on right half of detached nose on right side of top rock, finally on arete to top.

warning: Loose rock is still a concern here. Belayer or other members of party should not stand anywhere near underneath the climber.

. . . (Lots of vegetation on this rock as of 2016. Be prepared when climbing to navigate around protruding trees and branches, and dealing with holds slippery with grass, lichen, moss, dirt).

Location 

Triangle of attached rock between the very large tree and the obvious low nose -- which is about a foot thick, and whose left side is a vertical left-facing corner/flake, and whose right side is a left-slanting rounded thing with a horn near its top.
