Scramble the top of a mini buttress at a pine tree. Climb strait up (really). Gear is reasonable. There a runout easy slab just before the end of pitch one. Belay off pine tree ledge off gear (5.5R, 180'). Pitch two continues up and left a bit to a short vertical crack, then over the left end of the overlap at a loose looking block. Pitch two ends at the top of the cliff. Watch out for vulture poop at the top out (5.5 40').


Route is located in the center of the big slab, beginning at the top of a small buttress. Use the goat trail to access the start.

To descend, follow your nose strait back, and turn left down the obvious chimney/gully. Follow it back to the base.


Standard rack to a #3 Camalot.
