This route offers hard slab moves at the start. Pitch 2 continuing on using small crimps along this this crack making anchors for a pendulum to the right into the left facing dihederal and then some easy climbing to good gear anchors. Traverse left to the more radical looking exit. Pitch 4 move through the roofs to summit. Walk off.


Leave Ashley Creek when due west of the buttress. We skirted the long big boulder field on the left.


Rp's small and med nuts and likewise in friend size.
