P1 is runout with no pro. Made an anchor at a large rock with cracks visible from the ground. P2 went up to a bulge with a slot in it that took one cam. Over that is a huge ledge with a tree next to it. The ledge is large enough for several cars. P3 - From there I went up to a juniper tree and made a sling anchor. P4 follows a large crack that takes big cams ending up at a seat with cracks for a gear anchor. P5 is basically a walk over the bulge to the summit ridge.
The rappel from the 2-bolt anchor for the sport route at the North end of the ridge is actually more like 80 ft., so a 50 meter rope would just barely get you down. A 60 m rope will leave you a pile of extra on the ground. There are no quicklinks or chains on the bolts as of 5-9-07.

|Did this 8/31/2014. The first place I could find protection was about 120' up, about 30' below the obvious overhang with a tree on top. I found that Lowe Tricams worked pretty well in several spots. Beyond here, there is much more protection, and the climbing is easier -- but watch out for that first pitch!|
