5.10 140 m (l)
P1, about 60m, low 5th Start on the right side of the eastern most buttress. The route starts by climbing the low 5th class slabs right of the steep bushy gully. Trending left near the top, where the gully narrows/steepens and the slabs are blocked by a huge roof.
P2, 20m, 5.10 Belay from small horn with a blue rap sling. Climb cracks and steep ramp by stemming for 8 meters to intimidating blocky overhang. Pull through overhang to alcove and continue up thin crack and face moves to the top. Belay from yellow cedar bush/tree (rap sling).
P3, 20m, 5.9 Climb over yellow cedar and belay at next steep face. ** notice to your left about 15m is the first pitchä of Indian Summer (IS). Climb up the easy left slanting ramp past some yellow cedar bushes to a steep/deep narrow dihedral. Stem and jam the dihedral to a blocky top. Climb past the blocks over a series of small faces to the base of the steep obvious off-width and belay at slung boulder.
P4, 15m, 5.9 Swing right for 5 meters past horn and climb steep cracks on first right facing corner. Climb over boulder that guards the top to a good ledge and belay. This is near the top of the difficulties of Indian Summer. We top roped the off-width at 5.10b. Walk 6m left around back of boulder to horn with blue sling. Rappel route.
Excellent gear and sustained climbing.
