Description:

From the "Simplicity" anchors climb crack systems for 25m until you pull over the edge of a slab and down to the right onto a nice ledge with a stout pine tree (same as the first part of "Beyond Simplicity"). Another slab goes up directly beyond the pine - pull up onto it and follow more crack systems to the top (15m). Midway up is an interesting 2-move traverse from a crack on the left edge of the slab back over to the right to another crack.

Descent Options:

The top is right by the passageway that drops down through the boulder complex to the ledge with the rap rings on static lines. There is a pine tree available for the 20ft rappel to the ledge.
