This climb follows the obvious crack up the middle of the face, and is one of the classics in the Columbia area. Start with a wide chimney, then grovel into an offwidth section. Bring large cams to protect this part. After the offwidth, continue climbing up a good and easy-to-protect hand crack until you get to a small roof, and the crack becomes more of a water groove. Place all the tricams you own on a shelf under the roof, then gun for the top. The crux occurs right when your feet get to the last piece of gear, but the runout after the crux is easy. This is a well-protected climb, but if you are not comfortable at 5.10, then there may be some major air time at the crux.
