Start at the large, square ledge at the right end of the large roof system that Withering Heights ascends. Climb the face to a pine tree and ledge. Follow a crack with a pin in it up to the arching right facing corner. Move left around the corner and diaganol right up pace white rock to the top.

Easy climbing to the first tree and ledge, then turns into a 5.6. Last face above 2nd tree was a bit awkward and thin. It was intimidating for the leader who normally leads up to 5.9, but was rusty from lack of climbing. My regular partner lead the last pitch in fine style. It's a long walk from either parking lot, but a nice little climb when the rest of the park is full of climbers. Excellent view of Skytop from the 2nd tree or the top. The rap tat looked ok, but we decided to descend via Roger's Escape Hatch because I had never done it and my partners thought I should know where it is. Next time, I'll rap. A fresh layer of pine needles and fallen leaves made it one slippery descent.
