Follow the series of parallel cracks up the center of the face, getting into the system of cracks is about the toughest part. Once in it cruise to the top. Rock quality is actually pretty good.


Straight up the center of the face. Can't miss it.
Descend via 2nd-ish class scramble on back.


Small to Medium pro for the cracks, this climb will eat anything you throw at it. Sling the formation at the top for anchor. (~2' in diameter)
