Past Nick's Tick and the descent gully, a small salal ledge leads up to a small damp cave. Start here at a belay bolt. Pitch 1: (5.9) layback up the corner to the trees. Exit out right through the chimney that spits you out onto an enormous, wildly exposed knife edge flake, traverse right protected buy a bolt, to a hanging belay tucked behind a cedar tree and below a roof . Pitch 2 (5.9) : Pass the roof on the left and up a corner to easy terrain. Pitch 3 (5.8) A few variations ecsist. Either traverse left to the large solitary tree (alternate belay) and then go strait up the pine nettle filled crack. Or go strait up then traverse left gaining the small ledge above the solitary tree. Traverse right climbing bolt protected slab. The bolts are right where you need them and wildly run out where you donít.
