Look for a chalked up flake. Start up the flake with fingers which trends slightly left and then straight up. The crack then turns into tight hands and ends on a ledge. There are anchors on top of the sport climb next to the crack, but set a good directional if top roping from these anchors so your second doesn't take an unfortunate pendulum.


This is one of the first routes when first approaching the wall from the notch. Look for a chalked up flake.


Fingers to hand sized cams and a good selection of wires.
