Description 

P1 - Climb the corner to the ledge 12 feet up as for Loose Block. Climb the steep face of the left-facing corner above, passing much friable rock to a ledge below the ceiling (or climb Loose Block to this point, better and safer with better rock). Continue through the overhang and follow 4 bolts up the face to a large belay ledge with a tree (same as Loose Block Direct and Blockhead).

P2 - Climb the short face past a piton to the top.

Location 

Same as for Loose Block

Protection 

Standard rack, with draws for bolts.

There are 5 bolts on the first pitch, the first could be used as to set up a belay anchor from the first ledge but it's also convenient to just belay from the trail area.

There are no bolts for the second pitch.
