Another fun route for crusin' or beginner trad-lead. This route is usually in the shade in the afternoon.

The last 30 feet of this good looking trad route is made up of some seriously loose rock. It looks a bit like some kind of jenga puzzle ready to avalanche at the slightest touch. If considering this route, you can hop right to Anne of a Thousand Days anytime it gets too loose for comfort.
