the first time, we climbed an nice 7+ variation on the first pitch, we climbed straight to the tree, visible from the bottom of the first pitch. to make it easier, climb to the left, across the drainage and to the first set of bolts. once to the bolts, it is a straight shot to the 5th pitch, at which time, you would vear to the right, across a deep crack to the final face pitch. in my opinion this last pitch is what makes this climb worth it. the exposure, scenery and beautiful rock all come together to make this a classic.

Descent Options:

The first time, we met up with a party that said it is better to do a single rappel off of the summit, the only problem being rope drag. And what an exiting rappel, but we did have to wait at the bottom for someone to toss our rope down. The second time
