Ascent Trip Report

From where we parked, we headed for the brushy draw that goes up diagonally under the steep cliffs, staying close to the wall and making our way up through brush and juniper until we came to the Crack. We scrambled up to the far end, where we were looking down the north face of the rock. From there we wormed across the overhung ledge, and the rest was climbing up a chute and a wall, then across a broken-up ridge to the last wall, a 30 footer with an obvious route up to the left. Great views from the summit, where we left a geocache.
