Climb up lovely dimpled slab to the right edge of a bulge. You may be able to find a cam placement off to the right; a recent inspection indicates the route may be protectable by cleaning out the crack to the right, but the original ascent climbed the unprotected bulging slab to the fist/offwidth vertical crack in the headwall.
Climb that fat crack through the brief headwall, then up easy slab to trees.


On the right edge of the typical waterline, near the right end of an angled boulder that creates a "ditch" between it and the slab.
A 70 m rope allows TRing of this and all other lines on the Main Slab.


#3, 4, & 5 C4s. A .5 or .7 cam may help ease the risk of the 5.6 X slab leading to the crux.
