Slightly up from the main path, in a chimney corner of the cliff, just past the Sunshine slab. A classic fun easy climb,with great exposure on the second pitch and a great view at the top. Begin in a chimney, and load it up or run it out, however you choose. Step over to a slab and go up to anchors by an old shaky cedar tree, for the first belay. Traverse to the nose of the cliff on big stuff, and straight up to the anchors. Enjoy the great view, and rap straight down from there (make sure the rope is equal on both sides of the anchor). Highly recommended!

4 out of 5 stars Fun.

Great climb. I did it twice just to practice. Gear placement is outstanding. I used quite a few nuts on the climb. 3 nuts and 2 cams. A BD3 and a BD.75. Could use a couple of good chickenheads too. I opted for the BD3 earlier rather than climbing past to the first chickenhead.

I didn't attempt the second pitch.
