Description 

Pitch 1: One of the best pitches on the thumb! Edge up the pointed boulder for 30' to the top of it with no pro. Don't blow it. Reach across the gap and clip your first bolt. Face climb up and left past 3 bolts to a ledge with a 2 bolt anchor. This first pitch is 5.10b and classic by itself.
Pitch 2: Start on the right side of the ledge. Climb over horizontal overlaps to a bolt. Hard face moves above lead to a horizontal crack. Follow it up and right onto the summit.


Location 

Located on the East face starting on a large pointed boulder. Can't miss it.


Protection 

Quickdraws, Stoppers, and small to medium cams.
Bring a 1.5 friend to place between the 1st and 2nd bolt.
