Description:

Use either variation #3 or 4 from the Jim Pick starts. After gaining the first ledge, continue up the face and to the right until gaining the second series of left-facing flakes. Climb the flakes straight up, passing the tree on the left, and then up to and over the next roof at its widest point (crux). Maintain a direct line up to the exit notch of Jim Pick, staying ot the right of the shallow left-facing corner on the top third of Jim Pick. Finish through the exit notch of Jim Pick. Note: the gear under the roof is good, but the next 15' (crux) over the roof is rather difficult to protect

Descent Options:

rap rings at top if you came in from the bottom or walk off from the top.
