Description 

Begin at the base of an obvious, vertical crack system in the middle of the face. The start of the route is in a short left-facing corner.

P1: Climb the obvious crack system to the higher of two ledges. 5.8-, 30m

P2: Continue up the crack system past a bulge to a belay ledge. 5.7, 60m

P3: Go up and left in easy cracks about 20 feet, then up thinner, vertical cracks to reach a large, left-facing corner. Climb the corner to a ledge with some rubble. 5.6, 60m

P4: Continue up the large, left-facing corner about 30 feet, then move left onto the face. Climb up the steepening face to the top of the wall. 5.6, 60m

Scramble about 40 vertical feet to the top of the formation.

Location 

This route starts at the base of the obvious vertical crack line in the middle of the face. About 50 feet to the right is a right-facing corner and about 40 feet up and left is another vertical crack system.

Descent from the top of the wall:
Down-climb about 15 feet into a notch, then up the other side of the notch about 20 feet to a stance on the left. Go down and left off the ridge into a gully, then up and left over a ridge into a much larger scree slope. Descend the scree slope about 300 yards until you can move left to regain the base of the wall.

Protection 

Carry a standard rack with doubles from green to purple Camalot.
