Ray Palmer belays John McClellan up the north side...


The route originally had one aid bolt to surmount a bulge low on the climb, and it goes up a 5.7 face above to a bolt on top. I recall working on free climbing the route in the 1970s at about 5.11.


It is on the north side of the prominent, large boulder at the summit.


One bolt (old and rusty now) on the face and one for a belay, probably risky to use now if they are still there.
