This excellent problem is just to the left of the big pine tree by Obtuse. It goes straight up the yellow streaked triangular face. It is fairly tall and is not done often. As far as I know, it only has two ascents.Start standing up with your left hand on a tiny, tiny crystal (about the size of a pencil eraser). Stand on a good ledge and pretend to grab something with your right hand. From that position you jump up with your right hand to a decent, small edge. From there it is more crimping, heading toward a good left hand sidepull flake near the top. The landing is slightly slanted but good, but falls from the top are pretty far. So, a good spotter is recommended.


Pad and an attentive spotter
