This route begins 40 feet of the main arete of the wall where Cold Shot is located. Look for a wide crack left of a dihedral. Climb the crack to a ledge with a tree and belay. Continue up the round boulder split by a nice looking handcrack to the summit. Take some large cams for the belay. Rap from the tree above 11:11.

Cool topout, might not be 10b, more like 9+/10a. You can also walk off the backside. Wes

completely worth it for the top out and the hand crack to the top!

I couldn't find the tree above 11:11, so I walked off the back side, which wasn't bad at all.

Did this at my buddy's recommendation after he came back down the crag stoked out of his mind. Gave it a go and loved every bit. The bouldery crack at the beginning of the second pitch is fantastic.
