  • Description 

    Surprisingly good climbing, interrupted only be the proximal presence of a tree down low (which is not even in the way, other than visually, from the ground) and a small bush on the upper part of the route which one must climb past.
    The rock is pretty remarkably good and surprisingly clean, although some attention should be paid for loose flake near the top. Since I was on solo I did not risk the unpredictable outcome of attempting to clean the route.
    About 10 meters from the South-most end of the West Face, climb up a right-facing corner from the ground just right of a hearty Juniper. Pass a small straight tree (not in the way) to gain a bulging hand-to-wide-hands crack in a bulge of clean and near-perfect hard stone. Climb past this crack to a small bush, then up and left on excellent horizontals to reach the summit ridge.
    Climb the summit ridge for quite some way Northwest to improvise a scramble decent, or up and over the summit to an easy walk-off.

    Location 

    About 10 meters from the South-most end of the West Face of Isolation Rock.

    Protection 

    A set of nuts and cams, with crux protection being 2-3" cams.
