Just right of the tree in the center of the crag, follow broken cracks left, then up, then right to top out. Maybe the best line at the cliff, and probably a good choice for a beginner trad lead....[more]   Browse More Classics in AK

Does this still have the comically large ring as the single anchor?

Yep, looks about 3-4" in diameter. I don't think a regular caribiner will fit on it. Throw a sling through that bad boy.
