Description 

Euphrates course follows the right ridge up the edge of the granite, the first couple foot holds are nice and solid with your hands getting the work here, this rock is slippey be sure and chalk up good and be up on your finger game. As you push up from the first few moves you get to a sparse area nothing much for you feet or your hands, gotta stick to the right here and find the crimps and tiny divots and lumps, as you reach about halfway you will get a nice pure quartz ledge/crack that you can get solid hands on and from here you turn left with the ridge and follow it up to the peak hurrah!

Location 

With your back to the beach looking at the boulder straight on Euphrates course will be the right ridge. Start on the ground at the bottom of the right front corner, you will see the nice ledge foot hold and hit it from there. Descent is off the back side pretty straight forward, either off the bluff, or hop off to the right onto the smaller boulders to keep your shoes clean
