Very popular so get an early start. Or just wait in line; the pitches are short. Takes a line up the center of the face. P1. Climb a blocky pillar for 30 feet to an anchor. P2. Traverse right along the narrow ledge to a 2-bolt anchor near it's end. P3. Face climb up and into the right facing corner (birch tree) to a big belay ledge at it's top. **alert** big loose block just below tree. P4. Continue up a crack until it is possible to move left into a short corner. Above this, continue up to a belay at a large tree. P5. Swim up the dirty groove to the top, then shake your partner's hand!!!
Caution: As of November of 2003, the two bolts protecting the higher traverse on P2 have been removed, as have the 2 bolt anchor atop the P3 belay ledge. All sections can be well protected with gear, although the lower traverse protects better.
**7/11/06 2 bolt anchor is back at the end of p2.

Had done this route before and was waiting to go up to the toe crack. So climbed the first two pitches together on thin air. Was a great idea for killing some time and still getting to climb. Very worth it. Rapped down from the second pitch, judt be aware a 60m. rope is not hearly long enough and even the 70m rope that we used required a down climb with no rope to get off the route.
