Description 

Also called "Right of the Groove"
**Don't use as s rap route to the base, unless you're doing the route or plan on leaving gear on the 3rd pitch. There's only one rap ring/bolt there.
P1: Follow bolts through some good 5.9 friction to bolted anchor.
P2: Cruise a little left and up to second bolted anchor.
P3: Up more to second anchor, with one bolt and rap ring...(**See Comment), gear in right seam or flake above bolt, kind of a reach.
P4: Right dihedral, thin fingers but good friction to bolted anchor.
P5: More thin fingers past two bolts, and sweet parallel dikes. Well protected 5.9 moves to bolted anchor.
P6: 5.3, one bolt -on right- head up and a little left to bolted anchor.

Location 

If approaching from gulley, head left over creek in gulley then look for larger roof with a bolted slab meeting the left side of roof. That's Pitch 1.
If you rap the route, take the trail to the top, 3rd/4th scramble off top ledge of dome, I usually go to the top, large mossy oak, then down towards the far left side (facing Feather River), climb down off ledge on top of the dome, mellow slabs to the "hidden" rap rings near the middle of the dome where it starts to slope down.

Protection
