Description 

Climb the short arete to the chains. Very interesting moves & fun climbing - the only problem is that it's not 500' taller!
Beware of the first moves - a fall off the deck could end badly (you have to step across a gap just shy of two feet wide - the gap has a short drop of no more than 8' but a boulder juts up inside of it...) It's easy climbing, but the holds are unique and unlike most climbs at Summersville your back isn't to the water!

Location 

Directly behind the D.C. Memorial Boulder.

Protection 

3 bolts to chains.

Superb climb and very nice movement. Too bad it's not longer. A stick clip might be nice so you don't fall in the crevasse!
