Description:

Start near middle of north face (opening move @5.5 is crux of entire climb) below obvious crack system leading up, then traversing right into chimney behind huge flake. Proceed thru chimney to good belay ledge with one bolt. Pitch 2: Climb directly up to a left angling ledge/crack and follow it left to 2 bolt belay. Pitch 3: Continue up to right on easy rock to summit. Better pitch 3 variation(5.6): From start of left angling ledge/crack continue up and right into obvious widening crack system direct to summit. Entire climb has low exposure and is easily protected on good rock. Descent: Rappel 50' SE from 2 bolt summit anchor to ledge. From 3 bolt anchor make an awesome mostly free double rope rappel down south face to your packs.

one of my least favorite routes ever. pro all sucks and is useless due to ledges and low angle. rappel is fun but not worth the hike.

Noone ever said nothin about RUNOUT! jeez, the whole frigging thing was rotten and my only good piece (aside from the sparkly new bolts) was a #3 Camalot on pitch two (right side of the ramp). Clipped one bolt at the start of P3 and RUN IT OUT TO THE TOP! Watch out for the cactus on the first rappell!

If you choose the 5.6 crack variation (which I recommend), you can finish with a long second pitch, but really pay attention to slinging anchors for minimum rope drag as you start.
