Face climbing leads to the first bolt and a thin tips/finger crack. There are some RP placements and some possible cam placements to the next bolt. Crux is just past the second bolt. After the second bolt the climb is sufficiently protected by a third bolt and then a two bolt anchor.


Located at the base of Spring Creek Tower. There is a smaller pull-off and a large log to cross the creek. Look for the bolts.


RPs, Ballnuts, small cams. 3 bolts and a 2 bolt anchor.
