Description 

Long "crack." You can see the "Z" from the road and the climb goes up the "crack" at the bottom of the "Z." Mostly not crack climbing, slabby, chossy, face climbing. The crux is at the "Z" where there is a corner roof crack which is actually really cool. Do yourself a favor and climb the crack than using the face holds. TONS OF LOOSE ROCK. BECAREFUL IN NOT KILLING YOUR BELAYER

Location 

Hike to mini pinnacle and your halfway there. Hike up ridge and you'll see it. Scope it from the road so you know where you are going.

Protection 

Nuts, cams. nothing above a 3. or 4 to be safe. Small stuff for anchor. Gear anchor at top. We walked off right. Probably need a 70 just to make it up. Gear is...okay. Crux is well protected
