Near the top.


Pretty good pro up this nice short crack. There are a few spots that call for good balance and a few key handholds on the left face to keep an eye out for.


Small nuts, tcus, and a few small cams. Double chain anchor at the top shared with Hungry for Heaven.

Excellent route for beginners. Very easy to protect, cams aren't neccesary but of course they are nice.

This thing makes a scary aid climb. Fun route though!

Great route for learning to place gear. Plenty of good rests and places to mess with the gear.
