To reach this climb before Shadowfax go right on faint climbers trail. You will see roof and climb 40 feet up the trail. This climb starts out straight forward. However, above the roof the protection is marginal and the fall potential is high. Anchor is best at the back of finish ledge 6 feet beyond end of climb. Climb finishes with fun offwidth. This is a good Mission Gorge climb if you are comfortable at the grade.
