Description:

Starts right of the Mummy, going up a broken crack. P3 can either be done by traversing right to gain a ledge, then traversing back to the left to a bouldery belay (easy), or by going straight up from the P2 belay over overhanging rock (5.8) to gain the P3 ledge. Pitches 2-3 and 4-5 can easily be combined.

Descent Options:

Walk off via a ridge trail or rappel down a descent gully.

Solo Solo ascent by: A-Bowl on 2013-06-01 (View Climbing Log)

4 out of 5 stars jugs

Pretty cool rock. Took a variation that earned me a nut and a biner someone bailed off of. Its straight up before traversing directly left on p3... up next to a tree through some steeper stuff then traversing left higher into pitch 4. pretty classic and more direct than the original... better? not sure. but looks better. Harder? maybe... jugs either way. A great line to free solo since the hike is a pain even without weight.

5 out of 5 stars Classic NC

A truly unique 5.6: steep, technical, wandering, amazing setting. A must do.
