Description

This pleasant & apparently popular route ascends an actual line up the right side of this low angled, difficult-to-decipher slab. It is a 25-30 minute hike from the Fall River Road Visitor's Center. It has nice, south exposure for fall climbing. This route is right of the nadir of the face, right of Indirect, right of Direct, starting up a small, inviting, left-facing dihedral. There is good rock here.

P1. Carefully go up a slippery, left-facing dihedral (crux), with a small roof that forces you to jog left. Continue up the dihedral with good face holds left to a tree.

P2. Fire up and right on face holds with intermittent cracks and belay either at a large block or up higher to trees.

P3. Go up a left-facing dihedral and continue easy, pleasant climbing to a big ledge with trees.

P4. Go up slabs and overlaps, angling to the right to a ledge system. Exit right.

Rap 100 feet (or downclimb) and hike down the right side of the crag to the base.

Protection

Standard rack to #3 1/2 Friend/#3 Camalot. A 60m rope is useful.
