Belay at the base of the left-facing corner. P2: Follow the corner to its end, belay stance on the right. P3: Traverse right, climb through the bulge, and belay on the far side of the large ledge. 4 bolts. P4: Angle up and right towards a small tree, then straight up to the top.

Descent Options:

Walk off, or multiple rappels from the chains at the top of Ward's Groove.

4 out of 5 stars Lion's Peak

Beautiful view...very cool to see monkeys around (but because of the aggressive males; one almost attacked my partner). 3rd pitch was the best...the first two, mostly the 2nd was a lot of shrubbery and trees.
