To the right of the third class descent trail is a small, steep, 16 foot tall wall where the blunt arete is located.

1. Blunt Arete, V4.

This is the start of the wall and as you walk to the right, the cliff turns back away from your to become a 20 foot tall, slabby section with TR suitable for young children.

2. M Slab, 5.3.
3. Hobbit Roof V3.

Then, following this to the right, the climbing gets steeper, blockier, and is about 90 feet long and about 25- 35 feet tall.

4. Layback Corner, 5.8.
5. Big Block, V2.
6. Mantle Block, unrated.

The next three climbs start under a sharp hand crack through an overhang.

7. M Crack, 8, 1p, 20', TR.
8. M Weave, 6, 1p, 20', TR.
9. Wanderlust, 7, 1p, 20', TR.
10. Hanging Buttress, 10, 1p, 30', TR.
11. Right Side, 5.5-.7.

Any info on the straight ascent between M Weave and Wanderlust? Feels like a 5.8, so I hope it's not the buttress climb that has no description yet.
