Description:

P1 goes most of the way up Dihedral to a small ledge/stance. P2 pulls around small roof via a large crack (# 4 camelot size), and to the right ending on top of the buttress. These pitches are typically combined. P3 climbs creaky flake system up and right on small gear to a point in which one can climb up (about 5.8) to belay ledge. P4 easier climbing up and right to the summit. These pitches can also be combined.

4 out of 5 stars Bring microcams for 3 pitch traverse

Fun route and the roof on pitch 2 is MUCH easier than it looks and is well protected to boot. A slight variation to the left on pitch 2 adds some difficulty. The pitch 3 crux is protected by very small cams and should be treated with respect.
