Description 

Ten feet to the left of Old Aid is a rather nice, though short route that bisects a square roof. It starts out on a flake, in a left facing dihedral. From the start, crank up though some looser rock to a stance beneath a small overhang. At the stance, step left and then cross through to a short, right facing dihedral that is capped by a roof. Reach high to pull through the roof and gain a stance on the face above. Slab and smear to reach the top. A nice top rope can be set up on a small tree at the top of the climb. It might possible to lead the route with gear, but perhaps the roof and above would have to be run-out. So, climb it as a top rope or go for it, and just boulder the thing out.


Location 

This route starts ten feet to the Left of Old Aid.


Protection 

Small to mid sized camming units might work, but perhaps this one is better left to a TR or solo.
