BETA PHOTO: A fun moderate climb with a hard start....
Lieback the polished crack to a ledge halfway up. The crux comes early. Follow the upper crack to the tree that is the rap anchor.
The route starts in a small right-facing corner. This is the right most route at the North End (or Practice Slab). Park near the gate for the road to the top and follow the trail uphill.
Gear to 1 inch.

Low crux was real tough for me. Took me 3 tries to get started, then some easy climbing after that. Learned the OK finger jam that day.

This is a good, fun route to warm up or wind down on. The lieback start is a somewhat thuggish crux, but good technique makes it over quickly. After the little ledge, thoughtful climbing takes you to the top.
PLEASE- protect the start before you set off. A slip on the start will have you falling either ankle or tailbone first into a nice pointed rock at the base. A .75 BD Camalot can very easily be placed high in the lieback crack from a stance before you set off. Keep a tight belay and you're good to go.
