From the top of P1 of "Nickel and Dimed," scramble up and left on ledges and broken Class 3/4 terrain to base of loose 5th class. One or two shorter pitches navigates through this easier terrain, bypassing a double-roof on its left side. From here, there are many obvious weaknesses to choose from to the top of the face.


The obvious consolidated face located left of and above the roof routes, easily accessed from the face climbing pitch of "Nickel and Dimed." The first pitch climbs through chossier rock, while the second pitch exits via the face.

Singles to #3, plus additional pieces fingers to small hands.
