  • Description 

    P1. Climb up and right first through some bushes into a recess/corner, then up past a short crack to the arête. Head up the arête fifteen feet to a spike belay (70', 5.7).

    P2. Step right across a slot, then angle up and right to an easy, left-facing chimney groove. Go up this for thirty feet past one ledge to a larger ledge (the Halfway Ledge; this continues leftwards, past a large tree and under a bulging headwall, to the end of the crag) (80', 5.8).

    P3. Thirty feet above is an obvious, easy chimney. There is an obvious, bushy, left-facing groove gaining it. Just right of this is a short, clean, left-facing groove topped by an overhang. Climb this groove, go over the roof, and traverse right into the base of the groove. Continue to a large ledge (50', 5.10-). Note: on the first ascent, one pin was placed to enable cleaning. This was clipped for protection and removed. Leading this pitch is about 5.10-R.

    P4. Go up the chimney groove to the summit (5.6, 120').


    It starts on the far left side of the dome and starts up a major crack/corner system. Use the standard approach to the dome. Hike the trail left to its end. Scramble up some easy slabs to a large, scrubby ledge/alcove below the prominent dihedral.


    Standard rack of nuts and cams up to 4" and one knifeblade/LA (optional).
