Big corner with a small tree at the top. Easy as pie, steepens to "maybe 5.7" toward the top. Fun stuff with that mungy alpine feel. Belay is a bit quirky, FRA ("first recent ascent") relied mostly on position behind the big rocks on top and rope drag for security/anchor purposes, due both to paucity of other options and sufficiency of that security.

Descent Options:

Walk off the back. The tree's pretty scraggly, and the walk is easy.

I climbed this in 2000 or 2001 and I'm sure I was not the first!
All I remember about it was it was out of the heat, the traverse to get in to the start because the water was high and the piece I put in at the top to avoid roapdrag before heading to the left to belay. I'd call it a 5.6.

3 out of 5 stars casual corner

way easy, wouldn't be a bad first gear route as there's lots of pro all over the place. kind of an alpine feel, with all the lichen, the full-shade and the stunted tree at the top. great sunny belay, too, after a shady climb.
I doubt if mine was the FA as this is an obvious, easy line but I went ahead and gave it a name. Would be a fun stop for early leaders on the way to/from Great Expectations, for instance. I'd have called it 5.6 but there was a move or two with fewer than three points to move on, which is where I tend to draw that line.
