Scramble the hidden gully (class 2 - 3 except for a short section of class 4) to an obvious belay spot at a tree on the left and below a right facing dihedral on the right (4,000'). Climb the 70' right facing dihedral and exit right past a tree and large chockstone. Then go left onto the broad base on which the summit tower sits. There are ample belay spots here. The climb finishes on the W side of the tower by climbing a sloping ramp, a small shelf, and the a short slightly exposed 15' section to the top (4,140'). Protect this exposed section with a cam in the 1Ó- 2Ó horizontal crack at its base. At the top, an old iron ring of unknown quality can be found. Since there is really no room at the top it works well to rig the old piton (replaced with bolts) as a top anchor so that you can belay your partner from below. Take a selection of eight to ten stoppers, hexes, and cams for cracks from 3/8' to 2-1/2 with most between 0.5Ó and 1.5Ó

Intense Basic (6/15~6/21) students have 1st priority. Other Basics as space is available in order of request.

Registration for this activity is being handled by the leader. Please contact the leader directly to register for this activity.
