5.6+ (Williams guide) - G/PG - P1 100' - Climb the corner, move right to go around the rooflet, then gain a horizontal crack above the roof and use it to traverse 15 feet left to a tree. Climb behind tree, following "The Nose" (arete) to the top.


25 feet Left of Fillipina in a left facing corner with a crack and medium tree leaning against the roof 30 feet up.


Gear is there if you look. Anchor at top, rope stretcher to the ground with a 60m, we used a 70m. Could move right during rappel to P1 anchors on Fillipina.

This is a serious 5.6 lead. Definitely not for beginners. Quality climbing the entire way, could use some brushing on the upper sections of the arete.

The leaning tree is a feature I've never experienced before. Really unique on a windy day. Sling carefully to avoid rope drag.
