BETA PHOTO: Follow the rope


Follow the obvious open-book corner and crack. Make sure to get a bomber piece in before the first ledge. The crux is at the top. Place pro thoughtfully to avoid dislodging potentially loose rocks in a fall. There are often a lot of loose stones right on the edge as you top out.


On the face to the right of the cave-like overhang start for Friday the 13th, Triple Direct, and Fool's Mate. Walk off climbers trail left.


Standard rack. Cams to 3". Suitable trees for toprope anchors.

Not sure I 100% trust the pro at the top (crux) since most of the placements are in cracks between the bedrock and blocks that don't seem to be totally solid. A hard fall on a cam might pop a block loose.
