DescriptionThis climb faces north on the Milepost and gets some shade, at least in winter days. It offers good gear and fun moves, albeit a pain to build an anchor up top and get down from. Go to the north face of the Milepost (right side, if viewing from the road) and scramble up a few rocks to find 2 easy crack systems on the back of this rock. The left-most of these is French Flies (5.7). Chocolate Snake (5.6) starts as for French Flies, but diverts to the right (west) end of the north face instead of the left.
Belay up top in a notch (body for a chock/anchor) or scramble over the cliff to the south side and scramble down to the bolt anchors above The Gettysburger and belay.
Rap from the same anchors, or down-climb the north face.Retreat is a pain. TR anchors might be made with a cordalette over some big horns.
