Easier pocketed face climbing leads to crux moves at a hollow-sounding flake atop the arête.

Consider stick-clipping the first bolt. Mind the poison oak.

Above the top anchor, a second higher set of chains is visible. These chains are appropriate for top-roping the west face; however, lead climbing to the higher anchors is poorly protected and less interesting, therefore also not recommended.
