4 Pitches. 1) starts at a short chimney and climbs to a big tree near an alcove for the first belay (5.7) 2) A short traverse left around the corner will bring you onto the face - which provides great exposure ant gorgeous views. The climbing on this pitch is easy. Climb 5.6/5.7 face to a lone (scary looking) bolt. Move right at bolt then up 20' to a lone slot that takes several good nuts. Climb left to a small dihedral. Continue up for 20' to a small alcove where a pin used to be (5.9) 3) From belay traverse right 20' along a vague ledge. Get tricams in a horizontal groove above your head and make a 5.8 move to stand on a white horn from which you can clip a bolt. Continue up and right along this weakness. After 50' of this you must drop down 5 feet around the corner to a stance just right of a short right-facing book (5.8+) 4) Continue traversing almost straight right across slab and then follow a dike/ramp system up and right. Eventually it will be possible to climb up 30' to the top (5.8) There is an obvious rappel route down face right of route.
