Description:

Start below the Nose and to the right of a very easy chimney. Climb the fun face moves to a bolt with a spinning hanger. Clip it or run it out to the ledge. At the ledge is a disgustingly placed bolt beside a wonderful crack. Clip the bolt (if you dare) or place a medium cam (or two) in the crack. Traverse out left and make the hard move onto the "nose". Clip another old bolt with a spinning hanger, and pull the crux. Easier climbing to the top. Sandbagged at 5.9 (more like 5.10a).

Very fun climb. It's well worth the time. New bolts on top. Very easy to top rope. The big cedar tree at the base is annoying.
