This route starts near a tree at the cliff right base of the wall. Traverse diagonally cliff left on the overhang and top out where traversing anymore becomes a boulder problem.

Top out and straddle the arete to the top of this wall. Great crack systems to build an anchor and belay your second up to you.

Not a well traveled wall so be weary of loose rock. Fun climbing.


Locate the tree at the base of the wall (cliff right and south of Middle Finger Wall).


Traditional rack.

Natural anchor. Walk off.
