Just above the low crux.

This enjoyable dihedral route involves diverse climbing with a crux near the start. The upper section eases off some, but remains interesting.

This climb is just left of Gruff and shares the anchors via an easy traverse at the top. The climbing is well protected and enjoyable. Short, tricky moves are separated by big rests.

Easier for tall folks (I'm over 6'); my wife at 5'3" had a tougher time on this one. One or two thin moves, then a good jug/rest.

This climb is basically 5.9+ or 5.10- with the first twenty feet or so being a more solid 5.10. Two or three times I felt pretty advantaged being taller (6'2) though, especially at the beginning...

I thought this line was better and quite a bit easier than Gruff next door. Its a series of thoughtful moves punctuated by great rests before the next move. slammer hands for the top 1/3 to the chains. Lots of bird evidence tho.
