Start on the left side with a huge broken chimney, arrive at a bolt and traverse right (5.10C) passing another bolt. Arrive at a 8 ft section of loose, flaring offwidth that is protected by a bolt. Reach high and jam solid, wonderful thin hands for the remaining 60 feet. The last ten feet narrows down to thin hands/wide fingers (5.10+) to a two bolt anchor.


Located at the northerly most point before the trail drops off and becomes steep, it is a 75 foot cut-in section of the wall. 5th class scrambling to the base of the climb. There are small cracks within 15 feet of eachother; secondhander is the one on the right.


BD (~3) #0.75, (~4) #1, (~3) #2, couple links .75-2, 60 m rope
