Description 

This route ascends the center of the West face of the "Pyramid," another chunk of quartzite attached to Surpremacy Rock. The triangular West-facing block has 3 routes on it, the center of which is the hardest.

The West Face is a vertical route with few holds and less gear. It might as well be soloed, as the crux is not far from the ground and might be considered more of a boulder problem than a lead.


Protection 

There is essentially no gear on the route, but the route is short and the crux is close to the ground. This Route might be considered more of a boulder problem than a lead.

This makes a great toprope. Easy to setup on trees or gear from above. A little short.
