The second pitch starts in the corner before movin...

Description 

Although this climb has two pitches, the second pitch gets the three star rating. Very nice crack climb.

Location 

Located on the left side of the formation. Purchase the Marty Karabin pocket guide for specifics.

A moderate up-hill bushwhack is required to get to the base of the rock. We found a good descent path (climbers right- follow the gully) back to the road, however, which made the return trip pleasant.

Protection 

Standard rack to 3 inches. There are two bomber rap anchors at the top of this climb.
