BETA PHOTO: First Timer is the crack in the middle of the pic.


Follow a thin, vertical crack that starts in a left-facing corner. Halfway up the crack opens up to a 3 inch slot. Continue straight up to the top.


About 12 feet left of the far right end, where the 3 foot high overhang turns into a left-facing corner.


Standard rack. Walk off. Trees on top suitable for TR anchors.

I don't remember this a being in the 5.9-category, so I gave it a 5.7+. Also climbed it in winter with crampons & ice axes.
