An Independence Pass classic with an old school rating. Climb up the unprotected (but mellow) slab to the base of the corner. Follow the handcrack to the top of the corner and a good rest stance, then head up and left on face features to an anchor up high.


On the left side of the cliff, the obvious dihedral with a right-leaning hand crack in it.


#0.5 to #1 Camalots for the corner, some small, funky gear & a #2 Camalot protects the top, offset cams are useful if you have them.
