This route really only serves the purpose of getting the blood flowing on a cold day, and barely that... Good for setting-up a toprope for OTHER people in your party to climb, as there are a couple different lines you could follow up the slab... ;-)


This route is located on the psuedo-slabby middle section of the cliff. It follows the thin crack up the right side of the shorter section of rock on this cliff.


I used a set of stoppers, but there are a few small cam placements (#.5 to #1 Camalot) also... chains at the top.

Much like the climb just to the right, probably easier than the rating.

My friend climbed this route while I belayed and could not find the anchors. The natural pro left to lower off of wasn't so great. We weren't sure whether the expectation was that you traverse over to poundcake or not...

Yes, shares anchor with poundcake.
