Starts via standing on some decaying tree trunks. Work your way up a short flake to the first bolt and do a highstep mantle to land your feet on top of the flake. The next move involves another, but easier mantle to access the second bolt which protects the upcoming crux. A couple of face moves from here leads one to easier climbing and the rap/lower bolts. Fun and well protected.


About halfway accross the skirt of the lower tier, on the right side of a steep gully/wide crack with a fallen tree trunk in it.


4 bolts/2 bolt ring anchor (3/8" SS)

EFHR is fun and well protected. Be careful here as that decaying pile of tree trunks at the base is precariously stacked and deteriorating badly. Also, the gully above and left of the start of EFHR contains the perched remains of a long dead pine tree waiting for a victim. Be careful down there.
