Description 

Start in the crack climbing up from the end of the ledge. Place a piece of protection before starting up as a fall off the ledge would be bad for both the climber and probably the belayer. The toughest moves are getting up into the crack, but there are some great holds along the crack. About 2/3 of the way up, the crack splits in two - one continues straight up, the other slants to the right. While both cracks are about the same difficulty, the one of the right is better. Layback along the crack and continue to the large ledge at the top. Walk off.


Location 

From the tree and black water streak that mark Spinning Back Kick, continue down the wall past a second left facing flake to a ledge and a drop off. Rising up from the end of the ledge is a slight left leaning crack that leads to a small ledge 15 feet up.


Protection 

Standard rack, anchor off trees.
