F.A. Keith Egan, Marc Johnston (1981). Start on highest ledge on the east face in a right facing dihedral with a small oak tree. climb up the dihedral for 15 feet and then slither your way through a tricky left facing corner to beneath a prominent overhang. get good pro in and then move a few feet right and use a flake to crank over the overhang. go up varying size crack system to the top. crux is getting over the roof (strenuous mantle). fixed anchors above "Baptists on the Rampage" can be used to rap off (about 100 feet). Finish is actually the route now called "Babtists on the Rampage". Originally protected by one small friend place low in a horizontal seam.

4 out of 5 stars Finally gave it a good go

But stil flailed the crux - took a nice whipper on a #9 HB offset behind the flake. Too gassed for another go, resorted to direct aid to reach the sweet dihedral above. Emerging into sunlight at the anchors was a gorgeous finish to 3 days in the backcountry.
