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.

Bad climb if you want to lead something for fun. But easy to get up top.

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.
