Description 

This route goes up the middle of the face just right of Chockstone Chimney (the big low-angle cleft in the right-center portion of Short Wall). Start on edges and scoops and climb to a horizontal crack. Continue up the center of the face to another horizontal, then a bit left and up to the top. A good toprope problem.

Protection 

Toprope. Maybe leadable, but I wouldn't say it's particularly safe to do so.

rating: 5.8- 5b 16 VI- 14 VS 4c R

Decent training toprope climb; a bit stiff for the 5.7, so I'd call it a 5.8-. Indian Cove rock is grainy and a little on the crumbly side, so I suspact that the original rating has changed a bit....
