Fun route with variation. Start at the base for the first 5-10 feet on easy low-angle holds to eventually gain the face. Climb the right side of the face through the crack and continue to the small overhang. Pull the "roof" and end up on top. This route stays on the right side of the face throughout.

Descent Options:

This route starts as a low-angle scramble for a few feet to gain the face. From the bottom the wall looks like a pillar. Climb to the top, top out, then hike back down to the base.

3 out of 5 stars Interesting Route

It does not appear this route has been previously climbed. I broke off a number of holds on the way up. Varied route with fun overhang before topping out.
