Description 

The obvious crack system on uphill side of the formation. The crux is at the top of the climb, where there is a near vertical detached block. from there it is an easy scramble to the summit of the Philosopher's Stone. There is a easy walk off down the backside of the formation.


Protection 

Trad gear. Camalots to the #3, but you could probably just get away with a #2, or even just nuts. There are lots of good placement options.
