1st pitch: 125' 5.9+ r Start just to the right of main toe of buttress (to the right of a flat slab w/ an obvious raised dike running through it.) Climb an easy looking scrappy corner punctuated by shallow flared grooves (r). Head left around a slanted roof to a 5.8 slab (r) next to a grass choked crack. This turns to 4th class slab, then begins to steepen again. Belay here at a tiny pine tree. Belay takesblue alien through orange alien (1.75 friend) nothing larger will fit. 2nd pitch: 220' 5.10b/c Start up obvious steepening cracks.fingerlocks, liebacks and smaery feet w/ good pro. Reachy fistjams or insecure liebacking gets youthrough the final flake/bulge (crux) Fairly sustained. Belay just above this in an easy crack if using a 60m rope as you won't make it to a belay before your rope runs out. An easy crack leads to long 4th class slab and the top of the formation. Sling a large perched round boulder @ about 220' from first belay. Highfive and walk off to northeast down large ledges and slide alder. F.A. Vic Lawson and Joe Smith 2006

4 out of 5 stars Ascent Note

FA summer 2006 w/ Joe Smith. Huge whipper from crux resulted in a VERY sore ass, hence the name....Don't worry, I lowered to the belay, pulled the rope and sent it next try!
