Directions:  Hike left along the cliff band. The climb is about 30' left of the Sole Survivor dike and just left of the Robinson Crusoe corner and overlaps.
Description: Fun climbing on reasonable rock, for Humphrey's. Consider traversing right off the 2nd belay and around the buttress to the last pitch of Robinson Crusoe. (5.9)
    Pitch 1: Climb the large blocky right-facing corner to a layback corner and then up and left on a dirty ramp to the big tree ledge.( 5.6)

    Pitch 2: Look for two small right facing corners on a dark grey face. Climb the left one past a pin, then trend up and right aiming for a good 2-bolt ring belay bout 20' below the headwall. (5.8)

    Pitch 3: Step down and right off the belay, then climb straight up to the headwall and summount the moderately strenuous 5.8 bulge. Follow a groove and crack to the top. (5.8)

Gear: Bring a standard rack.
Descent: Rap the route with double ropes.
History:  June 12,1979 - George Hurley and John Walsh, June 12, 1979
