1) Stem and climb up crack system to limestone ledge (5.10-)
2) Continue up corner to belay at ledge (5.10-)
3) Join original route and climb wide lower angle crack to brushy ledge. The "Histo" crack on north face does not go (boatloads of bird feces as of Oct 2009). Continue past prickly pear plot to rap anchors.(5.8)
4) follow original bolt ladder (MIA Oct '09)


The formation has a downhill more broken corner on the WNW side. This system has really good climbing although the line looks less than quality.


Double set cams to #4
