Description: One of many nice routes in the vicinity of Echo Roof.
    Pitch 1: Carefully move up a mossy and pine needle covered slab until you are under a black "nose" with a bolt on its right side. Clip the bolt and summount the nose on its left. Climb a thin slab past a bolt to a small ledge and then up to a 2 bolt belay.

Gear: Bring a standard rack with some small gear.
Descent: A single 60 meter rope will get you back to the original tree ledge.
History:  June 1988 - John Strand, rope-solo
