Description:

Use one of the main starts (the left side start creates a nice testy start) move to the middle of the large ledge. Climb the small crack that splits the face above the ledge to a blank section, continue up to a deeper larger crack farther up, and continue on up to the top. Note: Stay on the face proper, the open book corner is off limits.

Descent Options:

Traverse / walk over to the top of Pillar #2 and descend via Pillar #2ís descent routes (see descent routes for Pillar #2).

5 out of 5 stars great day, great route

still fun when it's dry. The start and the finger crack are the crux of this climb. Belayed a lady who climbed it onsight, she echoed my enthusiasm for this route.

5 out of 5 stars The start makes this a "7"

Drippy, wet rock from snow melt/rain. Start @ crack left of Jim's throne, side pull and heel hook onto first small ledge. Shallow crack half way up requires sure footing. Climbed this at the invitation of two gentlemen from the DC area, thanks guys!
