Description:

1st pitch: The excellent hand crack near the NE corner, down and right from Acorn - 5.9. Belay on good ledge with rap anchors. 2nd pitch: Move right under flakes to the prow of the NE corner, then straight up past face moves into a dihedral with a thin, intermittent crack. This outstanding, sustained pitch is the route's crux -- getting established in the dihedral is 5.11+, and the corner above requires creative movement and small wires for pro. 3rd pitch: Lieback or jam a wide crack (#4 Camalot) in a small corner - 5.8. 4th pitch: Move up, then traverse right across slabs to a tricky move to a belay stance - 5.7. 5th pitch: Wander to the summit - easy 5th.

Descent Options:

Walk off ridge to the West, then contour the Shuteye Creek drainage to the lookout road.
