Blake climbing with rubberless shoes

Located in a National Forest Fee Area MORE INFO >>>

Description 

This climb is very dirty and mossy, could clean up nice, but there is a lot of lichen. The crux is toping out.

Location 

This route is on the north side(right) as you enter the recess area. The climb starts about 5 feet from a 5.6 corner about in the middle of the wall. Walk off.

Protection 

A standard rack will suffice. No fixed gear for anchors. Slings for a tree anchor.

The route is relatively clean now (thanks DK!) so this route is pretty fun! All I really remember about this route is that the first piece is good and then the next couple nuts are next to hollow blocks. I'm pretty sure they're still bomber, though...
