Look for this isolated pillar between the dam buttress and upper Dam buttress. The route climbs the slabby face with thin seams and a hand crack. A little dirty. Start left of center, move up thin seams, small cams and a fixed pin, then into hand crack which ends at roof. Run it out above roof on good side pulls to top of pillar and tree belay.


The fish ladder pillar is about five minutes up the hill, slightly down stream from the dam buttress. Either rap off tree or hike and scramble off the back.


One fixed pin, thin gear down low, medium cams up high. Tree anchor
