Hike to the base of the flake. The route climbs the left-hand edge, a chimney of the loose sort. P1: Chimney/rubble scramble. P2: Climb out of the chimney rubble onto the flake itself, following a decent crack system. Turn left and reach a nice bolted belay on the outside (exposed) side of the tower (big air). P3: Nail, clean aid, and a few bolts lead through muddled roofs to the summit.

Descend by rappelling into the notch, then down the northern side of the notch.


A mixture of lotsa clean free and aid gear, and a handful of small to medium pins. Jugs, et. al.
