P1: Climb up a left-rising flake/crack, make a tricky step left to a right-rising crack and follow it to a broken dike. Traverse left 20', dropping slightly, to belay at an oak tree under a right-facing corner with a squeeze chimney.
P2: Up the chimney until it is possible to climb out left onto the outside corner, which turns out to be a pile of stacked blocks. Hope they stay together! Continue up, following the corner system. Eventually, hit easing slab to the top


15' left of the inside of the gigantic left-facing corner, at a left-rising flake.


Full Adirondack Trad rack.
