Best 5.9 at the crag. Clean finger crack. The crux is committing to the slightly overhanging initial section. Nice exposure.


Set up an anchor and rap to the large ledge with trees. The route starts to the right of the left-leaning block on a large flake. After climbing the flake, the 5.9 crack branches off to the right and onto the face.


Small to medium nuts and cams.

Harder than it feels; great route, wonderful rock; easy TR as well.

A must do. Alone worth the 30-40 minute hike. Rattly fingers to hands during the 2 or 3 move mildly overhanging crux. Your reward is more splitter hand crack on low angle terrain for 20 feet to the top. Great climb for the new crack climber.
