Annual Trail Closures to protect Peregrine falcons MORE INFO >>>


Climb up the small right facing corner/crack system to a ledge. At the ledge angle right and up through an offwidth crack, and then move up and left to the anchor.


As you come up the path and find the first cliff face, a small right facing corner with a clump of birch trees in front of it. Rap down or 4th class up to Precipice Right.


Good protection, used some larger nuts, a few medium cams, and a #3 BD in the small offwidth section (but probably wasn't a must to have). 2 bolt anchor with rap rings.

Great little climb. If you don't like the looks of the wide part at the top, you can scoot around right and then back left. The anchor bolts are about 15 or 20 feet up and left from the top of the pitch (use a directional, or belay from the obvious tree straight up and then move to the rap anchor after you're done).
