Somewhat in the middle of the cliff are 2 rounded dome-like rocks protruding from the ground. The lower one being by a scraggly pine tree. It is obvious by the bolt in the top of it that you could literally trip over. Directly below lies the route. It will take a full 60m rope to rappel so plan accordingly. Finding places to put pro can be scarce in places. Because of the length and zig-zag nature of the route, bring some longer slings and/or Yosemite-Draws to prevent rope excessive rope drag. The route starts directly below the rap bolt and by working over blocky, grassy easy 5.0 ledges to a jagged arete. An old '60's vintage ring marks the spot for being on-route up the arete. The crux is surmounting the blank slab about 20' higher onto a narrow ledge. A recent bolt protects the crux. Traverse right about 8 feet to another bolt, and work up and over the overhang. Continue up the jagged, lichen-covered arete to a huge bench, then another 10' on 5.2-5.4 stuff to the top.

This route isn't very sustained in difficulty, nor climbed much, and covered in lichen, and it's a long rappel, so its' certainly no favorite, but it's good for some trad practice as there are only 2 good bolts in 140', and finding trad-gear placement can be scarce in places. I ran it out above the 2nd bolt with just a cam about 15' above it and that was it until the top. The top is so easy it's not worth stopping to try to place pro.
