Description 

This climb is the first you encounter in a neat little section of Sandstonia that is separated from the rest of the cliff by large blocks at either end. This little alcove is often quieter then the western side of the cliff and affords nice views of the river. The cave-like hole created by a large block 50 feet right of this climb creates a cool place to hide or eat lunch in the summer.

Start on the broken face just left the dihedral in some cracks (takes gear, but only a new 5.7 leader might feel uncomfortable without it). Climb the broken face, passing a roof on the left and continue up and right on the nice face to a small ledge and the anchors. You can TR the adjacent route (Lieback and Enjoy It, 5.10d) from this anchor with a directional or 2.

A fun easy route on cool rock.


Location 

At a dihedral, just past where the cliff juts out creating a narrow section of the trail (just past the prminent flake and corner of Butterfly Flake and Plumber's Corner).


Protection 

6 bolts + 2-bolt anchor

This route stays dry even after a big rain. Fun route. Get in line, buddy.

I don't know why this doesn't get as much attention as some of the other moderates in this area. the flake up top is incredibly fun! got my brother on this today as his first lead ever.
