Description 

Climb straight up the steep pillar via side pulls pinches, slaps (powerful) to an eventual crimp that aids in gaining a nice rest ledge just under a scoop/overhang. Next move up and left into a small dihedral that leads up and out of the scoop/overhang (technical) until you reach a nice jug. From here, traverse left via small crimps (start crux-to end) and delicate, hidden foot placements. This will lead you to a serious of left handed side pulls and lay backs (powerful) to the chains.


Location 

On the far right of the Alcove is a smaller Alcove/hidden nook that host an obvious steep pillar at the bottom. A nice ledge stance under a scoop/overhang at the mid point. The finish has a very noticeable thin crux face.


Protection 

Bolts.

This is a fun rock climb, but there is a lot of loose rock at the ledge between the second and third bolts. A lot of the holds I grabbed were loose or covered in rock dust, making the high third clip pretty sketchy. I cleaned and brushed as much as I could, but a more thorough cleaning with a hammer and a big brush is needed to make this safe for the climber and the belayer.
