Description:

A great route. Begin where the descent trail hits the road. Angle up and left heading toward the right side of a pillar. Belay atop of the pillar. Pitch two heads into a corner and then into the crux crack. at the top of this crack, head right toward the arete and belay. Pitch three and four can be combined into one long pitch. the route is obvious and ends on a big ledge. Pick your finish.
