This nice looking crack (5.11-?) is located on a separate wall about 10 minutes from the main wall.  To locate it, walk up the main trail until just past a foot bridge.  Follow a trail to your left towards the cascading creek and then cut right along the base to find this wall.  I didn't have time to climb this route, but apparently there are no fixed anchors on top.  Looks short but sweet!

Good to know the info about your first ascent, Ray. It's hard to believe nobody climbed it before that, but it's probably unlikely someone else will show up and refute your FA.
I agree it's easier than 11-. 10c? Maybe. I'd put in a vote for 10d. Whatever. It's a fun line.
Are you saying there are now bolts? I hope not. That would be unfortunate. Jun 25, 2017
This route is called Hoods in the Woods, first ascent by Skeeter Cattabriga and myself circa 1992. We rated it 5.10c at the time. No anchors or bolts were used, all trad ascent. Sep 24, 2016

Super Rad route, but easy for 5.11- I would recommend bringing some static line and making an anchor from a big tree about 40 feet back from the top, you can access the tree by hiking up from the left ("left" as if you were facing the climb) Oct 29, 2012
