Traverse left to right under a roof. The traverse is the crux of the route, and is often caked with a white fungus-y substance. Once you hit the ledge, the corner going to the top is cruiser.

This route is seldom climbed, but it's worth it, especially for beginners at placing gear. The hard part is down low, and can be completed with a boulder spot if need be, and the top is quite moderate and enjoyable.


Just downhill to climber's right of Burning Calves. Look for a hand-traversing crack under a roof roughly 8-9 feet off the ground.


Up to #4. No bolted anchor. Take something with you to build one at the top.
