Description:

Starts left of Granola. P1 (5.7+) is a nice crack that eats up pro. Easier moves up high after initial crux section to the entrance of a chimney with a two-bolt anchor with rap rings. P2 (5.7) is a fun chimney (crux) that transitions to a featured (easy) upper face to a rappel station with webbing/rings.

Optional P3 (5.8/5.10b/c?) goes straight up through a roof. Hand crack leads to roof and good pro. From there, two variations: left takes you through a layback flake (5.10b/c?); right steps around the arete onto small feet (5.8?). Easy climbing up to tree ledge.

Descent Options:

Double-rope rappel from fixed pro and piton (P2) skipping the first belay station. Trying to stop at the first station can result in getting your rope caught in a flake on P2.
