  • Description 

    P1: start on the North side of rock, and look for vertical crack above a short pod. The crack arches left on a giant flake. At the top of the flake, move left and into right-facing dihedral with a sling. The crux is in protecting 20' left traverse. Move up past sling to E face of the rock, belay near edge.

    P2: join the East Face route, and finish to the top staying center in thin crack.

    Location 

    It starts on the North side of the Back Porch, 60' down from rappelling area.

    Protection 

    Standard rack. There is a fixed nut on traverse.
