Follows a straightforward line leaning right to left. Follow the right facing corner, past parallel cracks to a stump in the crack. Continue past the stump in the crack to a tree at the top with a fixed anchor.

Starts right where the trail hits the cliff. Begin in the crack right of the triangular face.


Protection 

Takes good pro, standard rack.
