Description 

In an effort to continue exploring "Far Nears" climbs likely untouched since the Reagan administration, my partner and I worked our way up this "moderately interesting" route.

Make your way up P1 past a small right-facing flake to a ledge with some pine trees. (60 ft)

Continue up P2 jug-fest, and enjoy the nice views the exposure grants you. Top out under a giant ridge-top boulder, and then scramble around it to the trail for a walk-off. (150 ft)


Location 

120 ft left of The White Pillar block, a large block leaning against the cliff with an obvious crack, with Harvest Moon, on its right face; Find a short, right-leaning right-facing corner below a white, right-facing flake 25' up.

The pine tree belay at the top of P1 has red webbing tied around it.


Protection 

PG - Standard Gunks rack

BEWARE OF LARGE LOOSE ROCK EVERYWHERE!

I didn't think this was particularly loose. Anyway, if it was climbed a bit more and cleaned up it would be popular (End of the Near Trapps popular) as the face climbing is exposed and very nice.
