Start: about 120m north of the easy way down, at the bottom of a major ramp. The climb generally stays near the outside edge of the ramp. 1. 10m Scramble up to a rock spire on the left-hand edge of the slab. 2. 40m Climbing near or on the outside edge, move up to a wide ledge with a good belay. (With a 55m+ rope, pitches 1&2 (and 3&3) can be combined. 3. 28m Go more or less straight up. 4. 25m Climb up 3m and move right accross a slab to an obvious crack. Climb up the crack to the pine tree, which turns to be a cedar (very old - don't touch). Variations are possible. 5. 15m Scramble to the top. Belay using bolt (2001) plus gear.

Descent Options:

Hike to easy way down, then down climb the ravine.

5 out of 5 stars A nice climb

Good climbing with nice exposure. Swung pitches. This is definitely a Bon Echo classic.
