Description 

This is great climb and serves well as a warm up for some of the other harder lines in the area. Climb the white face straight up to reach the overhang. The finish is a bit pumpy as the crux is reaching the anchors. Beware of climbing this after rain. Runoff from the top of the cliff conveniently seeps into the crux hold, while the lower rock may be completely dry.

Location 

From the approach trail, walk along the cliff for about 20 yards to reach a large alcove. This route is in the center of white face behind a tree.

Protection 

4 bolts, shuts.
