Description:

right crack that forms a teepee shape 600' tall; 5 pitches of crack and face (when crack becomes rotten move onto face). P1: start in ramping crack, very chossy but easy. P2 more of the same but traverse left when the main crack gets too difficult and create an exposed belay on black rock. P3 Up thin crack/face to easier rock and back to the main crack in a gulley/chimney. Hip belay in the bottom of the groove. P4 is easy chimney, wide crack to ledge. P5 easy crack to top. Not much protection and easy climbing make this an exhilirating adventure climb. No bolts in keeping with wilderness ethic.

Descent Options:

Scramble south and east down the ridge
