Description 

p1-Starting at bush (see location below) head up the crack/groove trending right (north). I believe we found a tree to belay (100-150 ft?). Notice the four large towerish things above, you will be heading up and around to the right of them.
p2-Head up and around the group of four towers. Once near the large tower corner, head to the V groove on the right. Work your way up to a ledge with a few large crumbly boulders chocked in. Belay here.
p3-Choose your poison. We chose the crack with the bush in it. Easy going. Get to the large ledge and a 200 foot scrambles gives you access to the summit.

Decent - Rap off a large tree to the next ledge. Walk-off down the series of ledges trending north with pseudo-gully-protected down climbing. The large gully to the south may be promising, but who knows. No anchors on this route.

Named for Sabrina who left us for the "great" state of South Dakota. First trip back to the swell since she left.

Location 

South of one finger canyon, Go over the first hump south, traverse a bit to a fairly large bush. Or start where ever... really, it's one big playground (plus or minus pro)

Protection 

Light rack of cams and nuts. You may need to sling boulders for belay.
