BETA PHOTO: START and P1 of "Left Side Route


On the photo I show the climb in 6 pitches. We ran the shown P1 and P2 together: Big Mistake ! The mid-portion of what is shown as P2 is very thin, and clearly the crux of the climb (M ???) Also, running P1 and P2 together is much longer than 60 meters (200 ft)

We started from the described parking lot and hiked through the trees to the base (see photos)


Descent: We rapped what is essentially shown as the 2015 route on the photo with 2 x 60m ropes, I think using the small pine tree marked as end of P1 on the 1975-76 route.
Rap 1 - 100 ft to the pine
Rap 2 - 200 ft to the tree ledge
Rap 3 - 200 ft to a lower tree ledge
Rap 4 - to the ground.


Get it when you can. Belays, however, are solid on trees.
