Pitch 1. Begin up very low angle slab to ledge and first bolt, continue up the central rib on the ridge (right of the larger, lefthand groove on the face). Continue up the rib until level with the top of the groove. 5.7 (65m) 2 bolt belay

Pitch 2. From the belay move straight up to where the wall steepens. Clip the bolt (there is also a #2 cam placement just above the bolt), then move up and left through the crux vertical face to lower angle rock. Clip another bolt and continue up, then back right to get around a small alcove. Pass another bolt then move back left. Pass a final bolt and head up and slightly right to the summit ridge. A 2 bolt belay is at a ledge just below the summit. 5.8 (60m).

Walk from the last belay up the summit ledge. If you want to get to the true summit, scramble over boulders on the summit into a small forest on top. Boulder up the smaller of the two highest boulders, then do a step across and short climb to the summit of the highest boulder (the true summit of the formation). Take a picture with the cairn and post it.


The start of the route is literally 5m from the road. It is too obvious to even warrant an explanation. First bolt may be visible at the top of the small 10m apron slab.


7-8 slings per pitch. #2 camelot useful on 2nd pitch.
