Upper tier. Climb around the center cave on either from either side and then up the pocketed face for the finish at the anchor. Climbing up the left side of the cave is probably a little more difficult and requires good balance and a moderate reach. Climbing up the right side of the cave (the horizontal crack) has less moves but few feet.


Pretty much right in the center of the upper level. Access the top of the rock from the slope nearest the parking lot (right side if you're facing the wall).


Set up your TR from the two non-sketchy bolts right above the climb and admire the rusted, blown out bolts on your way up.
