Ascent Trip Report

i found ample parking at this little turnoff of NV-28 (i think it's the watercraft inspection area).

as i wandered through the woods looking for a big rock i began to think it was a summitpost prank... there were lots of smaller rocks (and a seriously big class 5 climb boulder near the trailhead). i didn't spot the actual captain pomin rock until i was ~200 yards from it.

climb was class 3 as advertised. if you get the right line i imagine it would take like 3 minutes to climb it. i went up the wrong side and messed around a bit before going to the east side and finding the right line. my descent is all on the line. the climb was brief but fun.
