This is the second route from the left on the small west-facing wall on the South Face of Surprising Crag (just right of Chasing Sticks).

Climb past an overhang, layback up to a stance, and climb thin seams and face to the top.

Protection

5 or 6 bolts to a 2-bolt anchor.

This one was definitely fun, and (I thought) much easier than it looks from the ground. Seemed about 5.9. Jun 27, 2010

First day to the park. On-site lead Vitamin V. Wish I could say I agree with the ratings. In my very limited experience, I would give it a 5.8-. Fun climb! I'll be back for more of it and its neighbors. Jul 16, 2007

Has some fun moves. Definitely surprisingly stiffer than it looks from the ground. Jul 29, 2005
