Description 

This route starts in the alcove on the SW face, to the right of the final rappel, on a black slab.

P1 climbs cracks (some wide) on the left side of the face (5.7), a groove splitting the black wall may be nice for those more bold than me, but the gear looked marginal every time i stepped into the groove. We belayed at a large tree with a single sling.

P2 started with an interesting finger crack that ended too soon, and deteriorated into slogging through choss. After about 80' of walking the interest comes abck as a large block looms above. Pull the roof on the right and belay.

P3 for us went up the interesting corner just on the left finishing very near the rap slings (nicely placed between boulders out of the sun).

To get down, either rap off these slings to any tree (all have slings, just be careful of getting double rope raps stuck, or knocking cobbles down when pulling ropes) and continue tree to tree to the ground (2-4 raps).

Protection 

Standard Platte rack to #4.
