Description 

A nice lead on very pretty rock with excellent protection.

From the narrow ledge, start slightly left of a vertical crack that's out of reach from the start. Move up and right to the crack, then follow the crack system on to the top.


Location 

Starts on a ledge above the main trail and almost directly under the power lines.


Protection 

Mostly medium gear. Bolted anchors.

There is a fun 5.11 variation that starts to the right of the regular start.
