While this might not be the most classic route around it tests your ability to aid on soft limestone, giving you a awesome summit.

P1- Climb up obvious chimney placing medium cams and a KB or two,aim for the saddle and belaying off of a big pine then skirting to the saddle itself, the crux is near the top. 5.8+

P2-Nail your way up steep terrain using in-obvious placements that will yield the summit. A2


This sits about 8 miles up HWY 14 in Cedar Canyon. The start is on the west side. Hike up steep forest to locate a hidden chimney behind large pines.


A standard rack including a selection nutz a sawed off #2 angle is helpful, maybe a K.B or 2. Bring replacement webbing for the top.

I forgot about Todd taking that digger. As I remember we didn't use any cam hooks on the FA. Killer top out. One of the best in the Canyon now that the pillar has been laid to rest.
