this mountaineering route starts from the top of the ramp in the middle of the face. p1: Climb a short but difficult chimney to reach the right trending ramp. Follow this to the large clump of trees. p2: climb up and left to the next large clump of trees (these are easily identified at Juan Tabo pg when looking at the face) p3: climb a short step to gain the gully, then follow the gully up and right to its end. Descend a short ways until the final crack system is found--a left facing dihedral (can't miss) p4: climb the crack (stemming), eventually reaching easier but looser ground. A full 60m here gets you within 15' easy feet of the summit
