Description:

Start about 1/3 of the way up along the base of the east face, just above the huge Macbeth boulder. Mostly face with stretches of dihedral cracks, passing couple of big tree ledges. Once topping out on that face, continue another pitch or two up the ridge to climber's left all the way to the top.

Descent Options:

Find bolted rap anchor at summit, near the screwtop register. Rap with 50 m rope once down to good descent trail.

3 out of 5 stars Watch the variation

Not an overly difficult route but we took the variaton to the left past the tree. According to the book we are then supposed to follow the dihedral up but there is a six foot drop off from the end of the dihedral to continue up the route. It is a little run out in spots but generally only on really easy rock.
