|Parking Lot Rock
On the far left of the crag, past the big clean slab, is an arÍte. This climb takes the arÍte. Nice line. Mostly good juggy rock, but a tad licheny. Some cool moves.
P1. Start in the base of the big right-facing book on the left of the slab. Head up to a shallow alcove, then up and left to the arÍte. Continue up the arete, mostly just right of the arÍte itself, to a large ledge with a tree. Belay (5.9, 70').
P2. Up the short corner behind the tree to the top (5.7, 20').
Descend to the west (left).
Standard rack from RPs to 3.5".

I found this climb to be slightly easier than 5.9. Easy, short approach from parking lot makes this a great warm-up. The clean slab makes a fun spot to hang a top rope from the belay ledge and let the kids play.
