Description 

At the top of the 4th class ramp, stay right until you are close to a steep drop off. You'll see a headwall above and large block with a clean crack splitting it. You will aim for the crack to start the route.

P1. Climb up the ramp up to the large, obvious crack splitting a block. This crack begins with a #1 Camalot and opens up to at #3 Camalot. Climb above the crack, and run out some easy climbing on a small ridge. Place protection when you can, and find a nice belay ledge about 30 meters above the belay (5.9).

P2. Scramble up to a left-facing dihedral. A crack goes up the length of the dihedral that takes #2 Camalots. Follow the ridge to the summit after climbing the dihedral.

Descend via 3rd class to ridge to talus field on climber's left.

Location 

This route goes to the right of the Southeast Ridge (5.5) route. Approach from the south in the valley west of Odessa Lake. Cross Fern Creek, and head up the slope from a small pond towards an open talus field. Stay to the right while scrambling up the talus field, and go towards a long, forested ramp. You'll be above the trees. Scramble up some easy 3-4th class terrain, and trend right until the ramp becomes nearly vertical and there is a steep drop off to your right. The route begins here.

Protection 

Standard alpine rack up to #3 Camalot.
