Description 

Pull over a small roof right at the start, then scramble up a featured face passing one bolt to a ledge. Climb the short left facing dihedral then zip on up the face to a two bolt anchor. The bolts are a little spaced out, but the climbing is never scary. Bring some small cams to eliminate run-outs.


Location 

A low roof extends for a good bit on the far right end of the crag. Start at the left end of this feature.


Protection 

Mixed. Approx. 7-8 bolts. Full length rappell. Watch your ends! Skinny people may not be able to get enough stretch to reach the ground.

Great climbing and positioning overlooking a south western shot of the gorge. If you have a 60 make sure the second ties in before lowering the leader. Knot Your ends when rapping.
