From a pointed block ease your way up the chimney, looking for holds on the left and right. Work your way up and left over blocky terrain to a hanging flake. Pull and sling the tree.


Fern Point... near Mellifluous. Look for the right hand chimney start to a flake up high.


Standard rack. Rap from tree.

Fun, moderate alternative to the tenuous sport slabs that surround it. Starts with awkward moves up a corner without great gear. After the corner you gain a series of ledges with trees and good gear. Then you can layback right up the flake or go left up to the tree and large crack. Trees at the top for anchors.
