The start of the route.


P1: Scramble up a wide break in the rock for 10-15ft put a piece in and make a careful but easy traverse left to a slab and a crack gully that isn't that well-protected but really easy. Find the dirty finger to hand crack and go up. The belay spot is an obvious ledge may have a fixed nut and Friend.

P2: Layback a slabby hand crack for 15' until the crux a bizarre face hold and finger pocket that you will later use for a small standard cam. After this move, it is over. Easily climb several more feet to a top out and make and anchor anywhere.

Walk off to the right in an obvious gully.


The first crack climb to the right of Ten Years After and Seamus. On what Trout's book calls the West face of Sheep's Nose.


Standard/light, and one #3 BD maybe.
