Start at the corner directly right of a distinguishable, broken tree. Follow a left-trending crack through an outward-flaring chimney. Move up and to the right out of the chimney to easy face climbing that leads to a large ledge and a selection of large trees and boulders.


North side of the buttress 100 ft to the left of Dolphin Head.


Natural Anchors. Fixed rope/webbing can be found for lowering on the back side of the buttress if you follow the ledge to the right.

IMHO, the wild exit from the alcove makes this route well worth the mungy bit at the start.

Fairly chossy, but the exit is awesome. Probably not the best for a brand new leader.
