Description 

Fun face climbing on good edges. Crux comes at the third bolt.

Location 

The leftmost route on the south side of the crag. Starts just right of a tree.

Protection 

4 bolts to 3-bolt anchor. Chains are rusty and could stand replacement.

Chairs are super rusty and suspect even though the bolts holding them in to the rock seem solid and don't spin. I used a quickdraw to the 3rd bolt just to be safe. Super fun climb, crux definitely just before you clip into the third bolt- although this guy I went with who is 6 foot did it no problem. For me, 5'4", it required a bit more thought on how to get up past the crux. Loved it though.
