Fun little climb at the Playground.


Zig-zagging crack, first climb to the right of the most obvious climb on the cliff, an off-width corner.


Small wires helpful.

Nice, good job Brian. Fun climb. It's a fun little area up there. There is a fun short .10 way to the left and super easy squeeze chimney that is good practice over there as well. The OW gets a .10 if you jam it and a .9 if you lay it back. It's like a .9 if you jam it and I don'y know why you would want to lay it back.

Yup, we all leaned back off that sucker. But Nick (guy in photo) squeezed up it. It helps when you're 5-6 and 120 lbs!
