Description 

As the name implies, Easy Overhang is a straight forward climb up monster, positive holds. However, those lacking upper body strength may need some artful footwork just below the overhang. Start behind the large block left of Last Gasp and go up to a ledge. Follow the crack on the right up to and over the roof.

In the photo below, the overhang is near the very bottom at the left. Last Gasp on the corner to the right.

Protection 

Standard rack.

Great route for a beginner, I am one. Don't get confused at the ledge and move left.
