Climbing restricted due to tourist safety MORE INFO >>>

Description 

Start up through blocky holds to a ledge below a right facing corner > jams, finger locks, and a few face holds take you to the top. The crux for me was a ringlock section half way up the crack (protected by a .5 camalot). Belay from a large tree at the cliff top.

Location 

Left of Mint Julep when you're facing the wall. (Orange Out Sector)

Protection 

A few nuts, standard rack to #3 camalot

Probably the best hand jamming at the Overlook. Surprisingly funky towards the top of the dihedral.

I got caught up and fell half way up the last crack, couldn't hold onto the a toe jam I tried. Had to finish it out though. Good smearing and deep hand jams

I've seen an ankle hairline fractured on this climb when a freak slide down the face popped a foot on the little scoop up about half way up. Didn't look like anything at all until the leader starting wailing in pain. Bit of a PIA to carry a guy out of there on your back. Good lesson in dangers of simple falls though.

Awesome hand crack/fingers in right facing dihedral. Last 8 feet crack goes away. At this point , look around for crux hold. Without key hold, the last bit goes at 5.9. With the crucial hold it is old school 5.8

Beware of a nasty hornets nest just before you enter the crack.
