This climb looks difficult from the ground. You'll be in for a big surprise because it's easy. Start up horizontal breaks to reach diagonalizing finger crack. Climb crack with foot ledges and belay above crack to not have rope drag (50ft). Climb more cracks and horizontal breaks to the summit. Belay from trees. White rock with a multitude of foot ledges and otherwise this steep climb would be challenging. There's a few ways up this rock band. Right of the cracks is an outside corner of foot ledges and that's probably (5.2). Left of the cracks is a face climb of horizontal breaks that also is about (5.2).


Furthest west rock band and the tallest steep section.


Trad rack and tri-cams will be convenient. Walk down the east side narrow gully. I used some discretion descending this gully, its a steep one.
