Start up at the emergency instructions sign, or to either side of it. Cruise the slab to the big grassy ledge. Continue straight up a stemmy corner on big holds, reach a platform, jam some more easy cracks with face holds and plentiful feet on an increasing angle, and top out on a small ledge just before the summit.

This route is ideal as a warm-up or for setting a top-rope on the 5.9 cracks to the left, or as an initiation route for the new trad leader. Place as much or as little gear as you want. Placements abound.


Approach for Long Lane. When looking directly straight on, the route is the obvious series of ledges and dihedrals punctuated by grassy outcroppings on the center/right side of the formation.
