This route is #32 in the on-line guide.
Start inside a deep triangular alcove that narrows to a chimney. Move out to the face on the right when the chimney narrows, and climb fairly easy blocky ground to the rim.
Not terribly exciting, and, despite the easy rating, this actually isn't a great climb for a total greenhorn/gym climber; there's something about the chimney that puts people off.....


This line is the farthest right (east) on the south wall of the crag.


Pro is a little awkward throughout, but it is a tolerable beginner trad lead. Easy enough to TR with a gear anchor on top.
