This is a 400ft route of which the first 50 feet prove to be the crux.

Start at the bottom of the face up a smooth, unprotected mossy and licheny slab (5.6 s). After this section the climbing eases and protection appears.

This section can be avoided by starting the climb further up on the South (left side of the face) and traversing to the center

After this, romp up easy rock to a ledge with broken blocks. Scramble left through the blocks and up another 100 ft section of slab to reach the summit

Descent - scramble West onto another large boulder and JUMP across a gap onto a boulder that is in hiking territory.


Standard Flatiron rack
