Interesting footwork, a steep lieback and even a spot of hand jamming makes this route a fun challenge! Being a less popular route it is also less polished than other climbs in the vicinity.

Pull easily up to a grassy ledge at ~3 m. Get funky with your footwork to gain a sloping rock ledge at ~7 m. Head up a rib to the left of this ledge, clip a piton and step back right for a nice steep layback. There is a piton in each crack here. Above this ignore the fact that the splitter handcrack is formed by a massive block completely detached from the wall and go for it!

Belay and rap from the large fir tree to the right.


Near the center of the crag locate the large fir tree on a ledge at half-height. Left of the tree is a large convoluted face; start below the large grassy ledge that is ~3 m up this face.


Nuts and small to medium cams. There are at least 3 nice-looking pitons in key spots.
