Pitch 1: Start up the obvious crack in the House. After about 15 ft traverse left out of the crack onto a 'ledge' and another crack system. Follow this crack system to the anchor on the ledge above. Follow the horizontal crack under a yucca for some more fun.

Pitch 2: From the belay go up the gully right of the trees until you see a bolt on the face on your left. Clip the bolt and climb up. Clip the second bolt about 10 ft about the first and then follow the right crack system to the bolted anchor on the big ledge above.


Descent by rappelling the route. The top rapel is doable with a single 70m rope if you are willing to down climb/walk the area from the 1st belay to the tree


Normal trad rack.
