Jared gettin' into it.

Description 

A little tricky to find, but basically head to the right end of the cliff and look for an elegant left-arching crack about 50' in height.

Easy climbing for the first 20' or so to a stance, power past the crux with a solid righthand fingerlock, and continue stemming up the beautiful dihedral to easier ground.

Boulder hop down to climber's right to descend.


Protection 

TCU's and a few nuts, a single 2" piece to protect the first 15' of easy climbing.

According to an informal survey of 6 people who climbed it the same day, 1.5 of 5 stars. An OK route, but not great.

I don't get it. A short climb on semi-solid rock (semi-loose if your glass is half-empty). Only the upper half is fun, and that's only 15 feet of climbing. It's a short boulder problem on top of a trash heap. Admittedly, a pretty trash heap, but a trash-heap no less.

Frankly, I'd tell people not to waste their time if their time is limited.
