A fun climb that the guide book puts at either 5.7 or 5.8 but is most definately a 5.8. Climb the left facing corner on the right side of the Nose Apron which is the big overhang below the nose.

Descent Options:

Rap from the bolted anchor slightly left on the ledge.

4 out of 5 stars Good climb

Nice top-rope--not too technical but a little strenuous--if memory serves.

3 out of 5 stars Tricky

A fun climb that was difficult to protect on my minimalist rack of one set of nuts, large hexes, and small tricams. Only the nuts were useful. Another set or at least the smaller sizes would have been nice. mostly laybacking with few rest stances but still fun.
