Description 

P1 (5.7, 170 ft): Start at the Base of Standard Route. Once level with the first treed ledge, head left onto a blocky ledge and continue left. The ledge eventually turns into a long traversing crack with good pro. Finish the pitch when the crack peters out.

P2 (5.8, 100 ft): From the belay, head up and slightly left to a comfy ledge. Fiddle with gear here and make a few slabby moves toward up toward easier ground. Trend left to a wide-angled dihedral. Follow the thin crack in the dihedral up to a good belay ledge with brush.

P3 (5.8 PG-13, 170 ft): Begin the pitch in a left leaning diagonal crack, and eventually hop back over right to the main gouge. Gear is sparse hear, so use whatever you can find.

Descent: Head climber’s right on the big treed ledge on top. There is a good tree with a sling on it lower down. Belay from the tree around a large boulder to another tree with new slings and rap gear. This is the standard rappel route.

Protection 

Standard trad rack. Tricams, especially Pink, for the spots with tricky gear.
