Description 

A fun, short moderate climb close to the Trapps bridge. The crux is a crack about 2/3 of the way up.

Start in a shallow left-facing ramp, and climb up to the large pine. Walk off left.

V1. climb crack 10 feet to the right of start (5.5)


Location 

Directly to the right of Easy Keyhole. The area is often crowded - it's a very easy toproping or guiding location.


Protection 

Standard rack.

Easy climb, protects well, good for a leader looking to break into the 5's. Bring a cordalette to sling the large tree at the top of the climb.
