The upper part of this route is an obvious straight-in crack system that begins off a ledge a couple hundred feet up the east face. This is a fun route with a great summit. We didnít find any evidence of a previous ascent, but itís such a natural line that Iíd be surprised if someone hadnít done it a long time ago.
Rack: 2 ea to 4.5Ē, one 5.5Ē, nuts, runners, 2 60m ropes for the descent
Descent: down climb west toward Angels Landing, down corners and ramps on the south side of the ridge. Locate a juniper tree with slings and do two consecutive single-rope rappels. Continue down vegetated ramps to the skiers right and locate another juniper with long slings and do a 55m rappel to the ground.
