Climb the technical slab with the first crux coming low, then finish up an overhang on long reaches between big holds. The second crux comes just before the last bolt pulling past a left-hand scoop to a jug.

The upper part was originally bolted by Zach Miller, and started on gear in a corner that is now heavily vegetated. Apparently he never returned for the redpoint or named it.


Far left side of the north face.


8 bolts, rap anchors.
