Overview
FA: Chris Cantwell, Barry Chambers, 1997.

A fun addition to the area. Sustained and slabby with steps to slabby bulges, the crux second pitch is both well-protected by Tuolumne standards and somewhat heads-up at many of the harder moves. A bit of lichen detracts from the quality. Runout but easy on the first pitch, with a 3rd class approach from the left. Two ropes are required.
