Climb the obvious hand crack (Route 6). Mid way climb left on a small seam and up a steep face/crack with strenuous gear placements and a couple of burly moves. Nice climbing with the major detraction being a close proximity to the hand crack. Still worth trying for the moves. The old Matt Samet guide book referred to this route as "incredible", so quality is in the mind of the climber. You be the judge.


Route #5 in the Photo.


Micro to medium cams, wires; the hangers are long gone so forget the draws.

lead this route on natural pro today, the bolt's hangers have been removed. The crux protects well with tiny cams, then small nuts above. A little contrived but a fun route with hard moves above small pro.

Jamie, so is the route worth doing, more than one star or is it just something to do once you've already done everything else in the area?

yeah, it's fun, just a little contrive since it is quite close to the crack. But once you commit to the seam you can no longer grab the crack. The hard climbing is really only a couple of moves on some sloping crimps and thin jams. Placing one cam is pretty burly as well. Kind of cool it goes safely on trad gear.
