  • Description 

    There are two starting variations on this for pitch 1. One can either work left scrambling up ramps or you can take the 5.6 crack just right of Garbanzo Bean (recommended). Belay on a ledge at a notch I slung a rock to set up belay, didn't see any bolts. Pitch 2: From ledge climb class 4 right to an overhang. One could place a piece (red) into the crack where the over hang meets the slope. Skirt the opening to the right and climb over some boulders and you're on the top. Descent: Rock Climbing AZ book says you need a double rope rap for this. I'm not sure you do, seemed to us a single 60 would get you down. Your discretion though.
