Description 

This is the easiest route on the formation, and the original. A corner start leads to a slightly overhanging layback/fingers crack up the south side of the rock. A tall, scary boulder problem or a fairly serious runout lead. Orignally one had to jump-off to a lower boulder via the north side.

Protection 

Thin cams/nuts up high, and rap bolts
