Ascend the attractive face right of Sultans of Stem. Boulder a thin start to the first "bolt." The climbing eases up considerably afterward.

Plug in a piece or two in a small horizontal between the bolts.

Follow the interesting rock to the anchors.

Reportedly there is a second pitch that goes all the way to the big ledge.


Right of Sultans of Stem.


Two questionable bolts with angle aluminum hangers. Small piece(s) in a horizontal. Better bolted anchors.
