To reach the base:
Upon reaching the saddle, follow the trail into the trees. The trail will rise and head left, following the cliff band. Before you reach the 3rd class gully, a faint trail heads downhill. Follow this climber's trail to the base.
To reach the top of the climb:
Follow the directions above, but ascend the 3rd class gully. Follow a climber's trail down the other side of the formation to reach the large ledge halfway up the wall. The slung oak at the end of the ledge is the anchor.
A big Camalot protects the roof very well.
From a great stance above the roof, a good medium sized cam can be placed behind the rib down low.
Top Roping: a top rope can easily be set up from above.
From the top of the crag, walk down the left side (climber's left) to access the big ledge halfway up the face. At the end of the ledge, the top of Fern Dust is marked by an oak with black slings and a fat ring.
