Description 

The route is not noteworthy in itself. It is the only viable route to the summit though. From the west end of the rock climb up to a vegetated ledge. Traverse the ledge to the left edge and scramble up an exposed, short low angle arete. Traverse the next ledge left until you can see a scrap of steel cable dangling from the sky. Find your way along the cable to the summit protecting where you can.

DON'T TRUST YOUR LIFE TO THE CABLE!

Location 

North side of the North Rock beginning on a ledge halfway up the wall.

Rappel the route.

Protection 

One bolt, small to medium cams. Shoulder slings.
