Description:

This is the easiest way to lead to the top of the pillar to set up a TR. Starting in the "notch" climb the crack up the west side of the pilar - two or 3 moves until you can stand up and 4th class it to the bolts. There's also a fixed pin near the start of the 4th class terrain (about 10 feet from the top) which feels good to clip to.

3 out of 5 stars More of a boulder problem than a route ...

... but it's the easiest way up to the top to set up a top rope. The first move is bouldering move followed by a fourth-class scramble. We were planning on setting up for Strawberry Jam, but the wasp's nest in the middle of that hand crack scared us off.
