Easy moves up good rock to a near vertical crack. Lieback for a bit up to a tree with loose rock on the ground. The tree is the anchor.
This is an excellent route to learn crack climbing technique and also for new trad leaders learning to place gear on TR.
One can hike up to the tree at the top of the route to do this as a toprope. Please be careful as there is still plenty of loose rock up there.
Most of the loose rock on the route has been removed. There is still a lot of loose rock above the route.
This route is on the north side of the crag near the top. It is easily identifiable by being a clean crack running up to the right of a beautiful clean blank face.
Gear to 3". Bring long slings or cord for the tree up top for the anchor.

Taco's guide is spot on, but the area is really chossy. One of the few places I'd give the helmet to the belayer if I only had one.

Like Jen said, bring a helmet! This is the San Gabes. :-) Lotta rocks ready to pounce!

Definitely a good route, belay is pretty awkward in the snow. Bring some long webbing for the tree anchor or be prepared to have rocks raining down if toproping.
