One of the earliest and very best rock climbs of its grade discovered on the peninsula. Although described in three pitches it is often accomplished in one. Start at some right-trending cracks and holds above the lower of the smooth ledges at the base of the face..
1) 17m. Take the good holds and cracks to a stance and belay..
3) 17m. Follow the crack to another good ledge below an overhang..
3) 8m. Move up under the overhang and traverse right to an easy finishing slope.
