Description 

5.8 G - Follow hand crack up and left into a book (crux), then follow this up to a rest near the raven's nest below the large roof. Head right following the arete to a series of flakes that go straight up, trending slightly left. At the top head right to a single bolt.


Location 

On the left wall, at an arete with a book 40 feet up, 20 feet up from the end of the arete in a corner with a birch tree growing at the top of it (can sling for first piece).

Walkoff back into the woods 50 feet, then over the slabby rock and down the other side for rappel down right wall (Little Gem Diner rappel).


Protection 

Gear and single bolt act as belay.

Top-roping non-beta: the Rocinha anchor can not be used to TR Soweto, this would invite huge dangerous pendulums.
