Description:

P1) Technically it's rated 5.2 but is a sandbag of one. Climb the obvious large left facing corner leading up to a pine tree using mostly the wall on the right. (This is the first prominent corner uphill from the gunsight notch.) P2) Not recommended. Goes up and right over easy terrain to the summit ridge and it's a looonng way to the north summit proper and the tourist trail.

3 out of 5 stars Fun.

Led first pitch to set it up as a top-rope for beginners. Easy with good pro, and a tree to rap from.

4 out of 5 stars Take bigger gear....like 3'' plus.

If you don't take bigger gear, it's longer runouts on easy, but exposed climbing. Fun climb.....if Licken on Leave it isn't open.

3 out of 5 stars Not a bad 5.3

Roux is right beside Lichen or Leave It. I took my kids there. Nice plae if you have climbers of varying skill levels.
