Description [Suggest Change]

This route starts in a nice clearing just down and left of Modest Man from Mandrake. The easiest way to get here is to rap down from the top. If you're at the top of the western-most section of Dogwood crag, follow the trail around some bushes and along the top of the wall to the west. You will come across some obvious chains at the top of this climb. Or, if the stream is low, wade across from the road.

This is a fun face with lots of potential for variation, but if you're leading it you will stick to the few thin vertical cracks. A small roof near the top finishes it off nicely.

Protection [Suggest Change]

Sparse protection up a series of thin cracks. (Micro-nuts) Can also be easily top-roped using the chains at the top of Modest Man from Mandrake (#7).


Fun lateral moves. Start on top of the 12-ft. ledge w awesome sitting space. I couldn't find any bolts past the 4th so I hopped over to A Modest Man From Mandrake. Anchor is good after the fun 5.9 roof. Jun 27, 2017
