Burt finds another pretty little obscurity.

Description 

Start in the trail, where it passes between the wall and a tree. Your belayer will have to keep an eye out for hikers (there is room to step off to the side).

Use juggy holds to get up on the bench. Work up the thin seam until you can move right to the corner, and finish up to the top.

Location 

Left of "The Thing" is a smooth, slightly overhanging wall. Around the corner to the left are some thin cracks in the face.

Protection 

Small nuts and small cams are key, at the crux.
