Description 

Start on the left end of the west ledge (just left of Oasis Red). Go up easy rock heading for the nice looking slab with a crack running up it. Continue up this crack to where the wall bulges and continue through the bulge (crux, good hands) to awkward moves moving right to gain a stance above the bulge. Move left around the corner to the north face and climb up the easy crack that lies just left of the NW arete to the summit.

Rappel from Elanor's chains.


Protection 

Standard rack up to #3 Camalot.
