Description 

Starts under a little block.. Get around this and into the slot/squeeze. Follow this feature to the top. Good warm up for the overhanging routes.

Location 

Around the right side of the cliff as it slopes up.

Protection 

TR, there is a thin tree that you will need to pad. It is on the top or upper tier so you will need a long piece of webbing to get it right. Might want to back it up.

Note there are two bolts at the top of this route which are taped up, but have been cut and should not be used for an anchor. It was not clear what the tape was for, hopefully just there to keep the sharp edges of the bolts safer.
