Tricky start with even trickier pro placements, the climbing settles down a bit after the first fifteen feet, but ramps up again to finish.
Climb the pocketed seam to a series of small steps, then climb straight up a face between its outside-corner left edge and a wide crack/right-facing corner system on its right side. At a small overhang at the face's top, continue straight up (avoid the extremely loose blocks on the left) to a large, sloping, pine tree ledge.


This route begins on a cliff 150 yards left of the main face. Look for a small, grassy ledge above a lichen-encrusted 15' tall slab.
The route begins at a hairline seam rising left from this ledge. The seam is identified by a series of pockets along it. It lies about 40' left of the right end of this cliff.


Small to medium Tri-cams seem to work best in the pockets down low, standard cams and nuts function for the rest.
