Climb the short wall (2 bolts), to gain entry to the green right facing corner.
Stem up the corner which is well protected, until a reach out right to bigger holds signals the end of the difficulties.

Kinda an oddity, since you'll need to bring your trad gear to this sport crag. If you can be bothered to carry the gear the climb is worth it.

Poorly bolted at the start as you traverse far right to an arete (where the holds are) and then cut back left - this could have been done with just one bolt. There's lots of good stemming in the right-facing corner higher, but the gear is a bit scarce for a short section above the ledge. Overall a decent route to warm-up for the more difficult ones nearby.
