This route follow the massive crack along the left-facing corner/slab. Bring some big gear. This may be a bit wet/slimy down low. Follow the crack to the top. Move left or right 10' to chain anchors atop neighboring routes. DO NOT confuse this with the bolted line that follows the overhanging arete!


Cams to 6".

For the sake of trivia: On Aug 28, 1981, I led Steve Sarns up this, which might have had previous ascents. Who knows? Who cares?

Gear to 6" seems a little overboard. I used up to a #3 BD cam and that was totally sufficient. Some micros would be good for extra placements low, otherwise simply rack 0.3-3 BD cams and a larger nut for above the dihedral was more than enough. Small area wet down low but avoidable during early June in my experience.
