Start a few feet in to the Girdle Traverse at a mid-sized tree on the ledge. There is a hard to see crack that begins halfway up. The crack itself faces SE. Climb face to a ledge/alcove and then follow the crack to the summit.


Left of center when looking at Haystack form the saddle. Refer to photo.


Small to medium cams. Belay at the tree. Rappel from the bollard down the Standard Route to the saddle.
