Description 

P1. .12, 90’. Super fun! Layback and face climb seams to a ledge. Have a good rest, then cast off onto the face and enjoy progressively more tricky face climbing until you reach the left-angling crack for the last 30’ of the pitch.

P2. .11, 40’. Climb up the groove for about ten feet, then traverse right at a bolt, and follow the crack on the face to the next belay.

Alternate P2. .8, 40’. The obvious groove and crack system provides an easier but less enjoyable variation to the previous option.

P3. .10 PG-13, 115’. Climb the finger and hand crack directly above the belay. From a small ledge about 40’ from the top, traverse out around the arete, and follow it to the anchor.

Protection 

Bolts and a full rack to 2.5 inches.
