Short Story is a burly vertical to somewhat overhanging right leaning crack on Reef Rock. With I believe 3 cruxes. One close to the bottom, in in the middle (somewhat overhanging part), and at top of crack. The crack it self is approx 75ft. Then a very thin face...which I did not do.(taller ppl may not have issue) I went to the left on a tricky exciting traverse. Find the gully straight above end face another 20 or so to good tree in shade to belay from. Can also set up TR from there via ramp to left of climb, with directional pro in crack. I would like to give to 3 stars but rock quality may not be to everyones liking. I think solid 5.10 is a fair rating without getting into specifics.


Reef Rock...#2 on Rock Topo in Yellow...Enjoy!!!


Standard back country rack you should have anyway. Up to #4 Camelot. No Bolts on this one.
