The Climb 

This east facing route is found via a short trail to the right of The Cave formation and shares the rock with the route Alcoa. This route starts with shallow digits for hands with minimal feet in the center of the main face. It gets bouldered on occasion, but most often is TR'd. Highly Recommended

Protection 

TR, bolts
