What they don't tell you is that unless you are a 5.11+ climber for ROTC or Supercrack, or happy to climb scruffy 5.10+ then this a long steep hike for a few routes. I am usually ok with a rough alpine approach, but this one is really grueling. Also this crag needs a makeover with all the old hardware and uncertain anchors.
It is pretty hard to figure out whats what. If you get to the left end of Dead End ledge you will encounter a flake system running leftward- North Ramp, next right - a good crack above the small roof is the start of Nightingale, next are some right facing flakes leading to bolted face- to traverse right under roof out right side- Yellow bird. next right is down EXPOSED ledge to larger platform where you will see the obvious great looking Easter Overhang. Down trending ledges right you will see the 2 bolt start of Stevens Pass Motel.
