Dave Lutes and I did the FA of this back in 1993- but we backed off at the anchors- it keeps on going out the splitter hand crack that hooks up and right up the upper head wall. we were too pussy to finish.

The route continues to the top at 5.11. Take the crack that tends to the right -- it will get your attention. It goes fine in one pitch. There are slings on a tree to the right of where you top out.

No anchor. Either do the extension or build an anchor.

Anchor to fixed nuts just before the roof. Might need webbing replaced

Anchor is two fixed nuts just before the roof. Might need webbing replaced. This second post is for my shitty typing.
