"Ropework" on the second ascent...

Description 

More of a hike/scramble than a climb. Follow area description to NE ridge.

"Pitch" 1: scramble up loose blocks in a gulley (staying left of center) , at the ledge, crawl through a cave then execute a short grunt chimney move (VO) to gain the blocky ramp above. Belay on large ledge below slab. (150 ft)

Pitch 2: Easy slab (5.4X). Follow well spaced ledges on a low angle slab up about 20 feet of climbing before beginning to walk up the slab. Make sure at least one of you is prepared to downclimb solo this section as their are no top anchors or boulders to sling. If you want to belay/rappel, butt belay from a dish on the upper slab while less-experienced partner downclimbs. Leader will have to downclimb unless gear is added at the summit.

Location 

See rock description and use imagery from map to find trail network.

Protection 

Pitch 1: Trees and ledge. Would probably take medium cams/stoppers.
Pitch 2: Ledge, no pro.
