Located on the S.W. side of the Hogsback, this route follows virtually the only good rock on the S. side of this rock formation. Pitch #1: A lone prominent, very wind-blown, evergreen tree marks the start of this route. Climb up and left on a small ledge system; gain a crack witch follows the left side of a smooth, white slab-about 135'. Belay at a tree. Pitch #2: Continue up slabs for another 60' to the top of the formation.

Great warm up to do. I hit this then head across the top to the trail leading to Deception...
Trail to get to the route is getting a bit grown over so be careful walking to the starting point.

(I, 5.7): Great low angle climb and very good rock. Easy to protect-even on the upper slabs.
