I can't believe this problem isn't here yet. One of the all-time classics right in the campground. A south facing boulder right in the middle of the party camp spots that starts at large concave scoop and traverses up and right. The guide books call it V3, but its the hardest V3 I've been on, for what that's worth. notice the starting right foot holds that have worn away.

Descent Options:

Top it out completely, then jump across a high chimney (scary!), then jump across to another boulder, then your basically down.

5 out of 5 stars Night Accent!

I sent this years ago, then tried to repeat it the past several times I been out there, but to no avail. It finally went this trip, my first night there, via headlamp. The down climb turns out to be extra scary at night!
