Description:

Hike up to the left side of the Pulpit and traverse around to the right until you come to a sharp drop off next to a small tree. The route starts here and moves into a crack system just above a roof that you can't see from the start. Pull the roof and work your way up and to the right moving from a hand crack around an aerete to a small ledge in a dihedral with a bolt, belay here. Continue up the next pitch with a sustained hand crack to a large flake sticking out, pull around it and belay from a good stance above. The next pitch moves into an offwidth crack followed by a short squeeze chimney up into an alcove and then finally over a series of small roofs to easier terrain. The next pitch is a short scramble up to the top and down the back side to a rediculous 5 bolt anchor. (don't ask me what's up with that...I don't know) A short 80ft rap will land you safely on the ground.

3 out of 5 stars The topout looks cooler than the topout.

Carefull on that first roof. I feel it was rather easy for the grade and well protected to boot. Wonder why more people don't crag around these parts.
