Near the crux at the top.

And give it to the Access Fund. MP will give up to $50k. Join or give and MP will match!


Work your way up the right facing dihedral. Starts out easy and becomes more sustained at the top. The crux is getting out of the alcove at the top.


Farther down the trail past Megster and Baby Buzzard. 40' left of Frolicland.

Noticed in DCA that the 5.7 part ends at a small tree lower than we climbed at 40'. It is 5.9 from that ledge to the belay ledge I'm at in the picture.
