Climb 20 feet up a dirty slab, starting left of the groove. Angle right and gain the diagonal crack. Follow it up and righ until it ends after about 30 feet. Then, continue up on face climbing, pulling a spicy top out on decent rock. The rock in between the slab and the top out is excellent.


This route starts right of the huge roof at the left end of the Dark Side Wall. Start on a slab that heads up to a left angling crack running through a roof. Notice the right angling diagonal hand crack starting 20 feet up. Take it and enjoy the ride.


Pro to 3". Rap off trees, or hike to a top accessed bolted anchor.
