This is usually done in two pitches. Start at a corner system just right of the left edge of the cliff. Follow this up about 40 feet to a good ledge.

The second pitch climbs a much smaller crack above. Protection is tricky but available with some effort.


This route is at the far left end of the cliff - start at cracks about 10 feet right from the corner of the face.


Cams for the first pitch, tcus / small tricams / small wires for the second.

Definately small wires for the second pitch. Maybe some RP's for where those old sawed off pitons are. That crack is thin and I couldnt place anything till I was on the bomber hold far above. I ran that puppy out looking down at a nasty fall before I reached that ledge.
