An OK diversion if you're in the neighborhood. A little loose, but the hand jamming finish is nice.

This route makes a good last climb for the day, as it's 30 seconds from the car, right off the paved park road, and a relatively safe and easy lead. Do the real finish on the upper crack, it's the best part. Descent with a walk off to the right (toward the dirt road and parking area).

Move on the second pitch is 5.8 - first pitch is 5.7, quite nice too. Medium cams for the belay at the top of the first pitch.
