Description 

Start with a few moves to get up the roof. "Zig" or traverse to the left and move up to the face. "Zag" right around an arete and up a gradually climbing set of holds well marked with chalk. Move up and "zig" back left to the anchor.

Location 

Start under the most overhanging section of rock on the main face of the upper rock, standing on the pipe, about 10 feet to the climber's left of the manhole cover. Get lowered off on toprope, or else top out and walk down trails to either side.

Protection 

Pair of eyebolts on top of the rock. Use the anchor that will drop a rope closest to the start of the climb. We find it convenient to belay from the bottom of the pipe for climbs on this anchor, since it leaves the trail clear for foot and bike traffic.
