Description:

Two pitch route up the west face. Wander up flakes and fins 100 feet right of Pinhead to a prominet crack system that leads to a teetering flake arop the fromation. Out the improbable flake past a bolt (exposed and committing). Then jump across from the top of the flake back onto the main formation. A must do, overlooked moderate classic.

3 out of 5 stars cool

not very hard. Followed the first pitch, then led the fist crack/chimney variation. Pretty fun.

3 out of 5 stars not too hard

getting to the bolt is a bit scary, after that it's runout but the holds are all really good. a knob can be tied off right at the top of the flake.
