Description 

This short climb has strenuous and awkward jamming in a deep corner. The first pitch starts with an easy traverse, then a 5.8+ finger jam, and easy hand jamming up to an awkward belay on top of a block. The crux second pitch goes over an overhang via hand jamming, liebacking, and stemming.


Protection 

Gear to 3 or 4 inches

It is possible to do all the significant climbing in a single pitch and belay above the 5.9 section at a better stance. This leaves the second pitch as a scramble to the top. Just watch for rope drag when placing gear.
Fun route to do on the way down the friction descent. Great exposure and position.

This route becomes a drainage after a rain. Wanted to do it, but it was flowing with water today.

Looks like this is often over looked, it's about 1.5 pitches and worth a lap, not awkward for me and had some nice exposure. Take P1 past the overhanging part to a nice ledge.
