If more of the climb was like the final moves, this would be a classic. Climb up less than ideal rock with less than ideal protection (5.7ish) to the beautiful, clean, dihedral protected by two bolts(crux). Do a few tricky moves, and pull over the lip to the top of the cliff, and the usual good tree.


Just after the squeeze between the boulder and the cliff, on the right side of Highlander wall. Look for the clean dihedral at the top of the cliff and pick the best way to get there.


standard rack protects the bottom, two bolts for the business.

Is this the route that is called Misguided (5.8) on neclimbs.com?

Nope, Misguided starts just to the right of this one and ends with a small crack at the top of the cliff.
