Description 

This is a short and exciting route that follows a wide crack/chimney to a left leaning ramp and to the summit.

Start at the slot that you downclimbed for the approach. Follow the widening huecoed chimney until you can traverse left following a sandy rotten ramp. Protection is adequate but the rock is crumbly. After traversing some 15 feet a finger crack will lead you through a weakness in the overhang and onto the summit.

Descend - Downclimb the East Face (see East face description)
