Climb on the right side of the face up to the cave system using some interesting behind your head moves and roof practice.

Use caution (tie yourself into the tree at the top of the slab above the route) when setting up your top rope.

The tree that juts into the fall path is the reason for the "s" rating, as a fall out of the cave will send you into the tree. Scrapes and bruises are probably unavoidable, but swinging into it face first could be really painful.


3 bolt anchor at the top.
