BETA PHOTO: nice rest spot after first overhang if you need it

Description 

Bouldery overhang start to easier moves.

Location 

First route on left face as you enter the cove.

Protection 

Two or three larger cams should do it if you feel good running out, or hike to the top and drop a toprope from the trees. Plenty of webbing needed for the anchor.

Fun, pumpy route worth doing. Bolted anchors on top, no need to sling the tree anymore, a cord-a-let will do.

The bottom half is easier than the top half. I found the middle third very pumpy and a bit tricky to find gear placements, although they definitely are there. I don't own any tri cams, but I feel like they would have been useful in a couple of places on this route because of all of the narrow-ish pockets.
