To approach, crash through the woods around either side of Rooster Rock to reach the South Face. Look for the easiest looking line (rightward leaning ramp). That's your route! P1. 5.7 Climbs up a rightward leaning ramp, clipping a couple bolts. Follow the bolts as they cut back to the left and belay from the new bolts (thank you!) just below a cave. P2. Traverse right and around the corner then climb the featured slab upward. Climb into the tree-clogged chimney. Climb up this mossy chimney and belay from the big tree at the mouth of the "cave". P3. Walk into the cave and squirm your way up towards the light. Slab your way up past the old lookout tower to the summit. Rappel down the North Face. A 60 meter rope just barely reaches. Light rack to 3". FA Pat Callis, Gerry Honey 1959

3 out of 5 stars _

1st pitch is great! You can't hear your partner between 1st-2nd pitches. Much better than the regular North Face route.
