Description 

Foot steps up facing ledge right side of slab. They end with lichen rock for feet and decent fingers. Continue until small foot ledge on right. Going up straight on the right side was where the holds went. Not what I wanted to do. Left side was my choice. Made the wrong start for that. Right side was difficult for feet because the lichen and rock look the same. This difficulty also during crux ends with no lichen fun climbing and a easy traverse into Jack O'Lantern. It could use a lot of brushing up but that would diminish its naturalism profundity. It is such a bad fall into rock and trees.

Location 

Uphill from the start of Jack L'Lantern twenty feet. Its the last section of slab before it get wet and dirty on the overlaps.

Protection 

None
