This route name is a reminder that freedom is not free or even cheap. It is named in memory of a fellow climber and Army Ranger Sgt. Jonathan K. Peney who was killed in combat in Afghanistan on June 1, 2010 defending my freedom.
The route follows the obvious right arching crack that splits the wall. Climb on good holds up to a small ledge. Step right(crux) and continue following the crack up and right to a large ledge. climb out the right side up through a notch to the top. This is a really fun route with interesting movement that is not exactly straight-forward.
10 feet right of the start for "English Channel" at the bottom of the right arching crack. Rappel from tree anchors or walk off skiers right.
Takes really good pro- cams and stoppers. Tree anchor at top.
