Cedar Rock's first route, its easiest, and the only one suitable for beginners.
P1= Climb the short left arching dihedral to a nice ledge with a fixed belay.
P2 and/or 3- Run up the fun face to the top.
Rumour has it there is a second pitch anchor now. Fine by me !


At right side of cliff. Look for short left arching dihedral.
