Description 

Hike as close as you can to the base of the wall and scramble to where you are sitting on top of a small tree for the belay. Climb the easy crack up until it steepens and hand jam your way to a thin slanting flake. Undercling the flake left until you get into the main crack. Finger lock and hand jam your way to the top (5.9+).

Location 

To get down walk off the top.

Protection 

One set of cams.
