Description:

Start about 20 feet left of Three Pines at a 12 foot swath of clean rock amidst lichen. (p.1, 80 ft.) Move up the face until standing on a horizontal about a ten feet up. Continue up, stepping left and right as needed. Finally, make a hard move up to a whitish left facing flake at the base of a short left facing corner (crux). Climb easy rock for another 40 feet to a ledge and belay beneath right facing flakes. (p.2) Step left and move up to the roof. Work right on good holds to a stance below a bulge. Crank through the bulge (crux) and climb easier rock to the GT.

Descent Options:

Carefully walk to climber's right and rap Three Pines or finish on Anguish.

3 out of 5 stars better than it looks

Did P1 only, could not find the 5.9+ G P2. P1 is good, although there is ground fall potential until you reach the good horizontal. Nice climb, felt soft.

3 out of 5 stars Ruby Saturday

Surprisingly good technical face climbing on small holds. The rock is very nice when climbing is hard, a little dirty on easier terrain.
