P1 and P2 are easy approach pitches to the real climbing above, link them together into one long 180' pitch. P3 is the crux with some well protected face moves of 5.10a. P4 has a few delicate 5.9 moves. P5 and P6 are easier and can be linked together. P7 has some 5.9 moves to reach the summit ridge. Don't do a double rope rappel as they will snag on all the trees/bushes. Be careful for rock fall and loose rocks on the ledges.


Park before the first landslide and look for footprints or just bushwack a bit through the trees until you get to where you can see the rock above. 30 minutes of hiking takes you to the base. Consult the photos for the location of the start. The first bolt is located about 15m up some easy 3rd class scrambling.


The route was bolted on lead ground up and is well protected where it needs to be and run out when it's easier. Bring 10 alpine draws. All anchors have rappel rings and are set for a single 60m rope rappel.
