A four pitch route that starts up a 5.7 flake that is laiden with large dikes. Climb up to the white bowl and belay here on three fixed pins. Continue up the prominate right leaning crack that is a lot harder than it looks. The pro is good and abundant. Tight finger locks on a steep wall with no feet bring you through the crux. Belay at the small ledge just under the roof on two good bolt anchors. Continue strait up over a horrible looking roof which is not as bad as it looks or go out right for a slightly harder variation with two closely spaced bolts for pro. Once over the roof, move out left up a series of cracks littered with fixed pins. Follow these cracks up the wildly exposed 5.9 face on large dikes and hand jams up to a large grass filled ledge and belay there. Now continue up and left over some less than traveled rock any number of ways (all about 5.6) to the top. Good stuff.

I just did the first pitch and it was clean and well protected.

3 out of 5 stars Burly

Bring a #4 or 5 for the roof. Much easier than pulling .12 to go around.
