  • Nuts
  • Cams as seen below
  • 70m rope
  • Shoes/pack for scramble walk down


P1 – 5.7 or 5.9

5.7 original

Starts up a sort-of left-facing easy gully/crack system to the tree, then the upper half steepens into a low-angle lieback corner, and then over a lip. Gear anchor, semi-hanging.

Link with P2 (67m linked) to avoid hanging belay (just make sure to flip the rop over the corner).

5.9 variation

Go up the cool-looking (but seriously slippery) finger crack that angles right, then up.

P2 – 5.4

Head up a low-angle corner crack, basically 3rd class, belay on a relatively large ledge (with fixed slings?).

P3 – 5.7

Step right to gain a nice crack running up the wall. Climb to a stance below an overhang roof above. Gear belay, semi-hanging.

P4 – 5.8, ~50m

Uses a lot of 0.4-0.75. Cut right on the roof, then traverse left on 5.8 slab to rejoin the crack system (old piton) before reaching the 5.8 hand-size splitter crack. Folllow a bit more 5.6 crack to a narrow ledge and belay, semi-hanging.

P5 – 5.8

Climb up to the corner system above and execute the infamous mantle (as long as you’re 5’5″ sounds fine). Place a 0.4 above the mantle. Continue above in a nice crack that takes you to a flat summit. The holds are pretty big and it’s over quickly.


Scramble down off the back-left of the formation and down the gully back to the base.

The descent is mostly straightforward, fun, 5th class down-scrambling for a bit until you come to an obvious steep, rocky, switchbacked dirt climber’s trail; easily follow the path back to the picnic area parking lot.
