Locate caver's route on the SW side and find the corner ~20 ft to the left. The route heads up left (not the adjacent right angling 5.9+ face flare crack) through a short easy overhang to the offwidth looking slot above that can be climbed with face holds, but would be nice to have say a 6(5) camalot for protection.

Descent Options:

Rap from slung tree.

3 out of 5 stars Hmmm

not very good in terms of rock quality in some spots, but very exciting moves. The guidebook says the crux is at the flake but getting into the upper crack is no joke. Make sure to have yellow or green aliens for the upper crack. This is a lot of 5.8 for your money.
