Directions:  Start on the leftmost side of the slab. Look for a small overlap about 40' up.
Description: Nice face climbing. Ed Webster placed all the bolts free on the lead. I'll bet Ed was in his Taj Mahal period for this one.
    Pitch 1: Climb the brown slab to a corner and an overlap. Continue to a belay ledge. (5.4)

    Pitch 2: Climb up and left past a solution pocket aiming for a lone bolt just below the white slab. Climb the face to another bolt (crux) and continue up and left to the horizontal crack. Belay with gear.

    Pitch 3: Continue unprotected to the top.

Gear: standard rack
Descent: rapel with 2 ropes
History:  November 1980 - Ed Webster, Susan Patenaude, Bob Rotert
