Description 

Great route at the grade.
Beginning will be harder than 5.5 (more like 5.9) for children and very short climbers.
the rest of the route is very enjoyable and follows the flake system to its end and then ascends easy slab to anchor

Location 

flake system on far west of cliff face

Protection 

toprope
Trad lead for the very brave/crazy/bored

This thing takes tricams really well, I hope this hollow feature holds onto the wall for a while longer!

If you are a 5.5 leader this is comfortable. This climb feels 5.3-5.4 but the lack of solid pro is spicy. There are 2 solid placements for small cams, I used tcu's, the bolt will also hold a smaller nut if you push nut down to create a small loop then push back up to tighten it down.
