Description:

Approach from the outhouse, straight back and look up and left. You will see what looks like a balanced rock on the sitting on the top of the formation with a short finger crack on it. To access this second pitch, climb the vertical crack with a few wider moves, up to the notch below the balanced rock. Belay here, then move up out of the notch to the finger crack and there are bolts to rap on the top. The second pitch is really sweet but is over wayyyy too soon. P2 is height dependent- harder if short.

Descent Options:

Rap chains

4 out of 5 stars Cold!

Shoulda dressed warmer- it was windy! first pitch is an awkward start from down in a hole, sort of-- P2 was fun for me since I'm tall, tougher for the followers. Great little summit, bolts on top.
