Sit start with right hand on the slopey area, left hand is on the edge. Big throw up to the slopey corner with your left hand. Get that right hand over to the sidepull-pinch. Next is the crux, another big throw to a crack in the middle of the boulder, find the little crimp for your left hand and then top it out. A right variation is possible, but may be closer to a v5/6.


From the parking area at the base of the mountain, start up the road. Once it makes a 90 degree turn right there is a wash to the left, follow it. There is a faint game trail and some rock cairns I have placed along it. Keep going around the mountain's Eastern side and you'll find it eventually.


Crash pad, spotter.
