5.6? 5.7? Fun climb was easier to solo then to lea...


Follows a right leaning crack inside a corner. The crack is rather large, and is probably best climbed as a layback, although there are face holds or try a jam if you're feeling bored. Usually dry year round, but the topout may be wet.

With a few pads, the route is boulderable.

a fantastic moderate crack climb in my opinion... perfect for beginner leaders... might be my favorite 5.7 in the park now...
