Description Suggest change

Approach:  Park at the first parking lot as you enter Humber Park. There is a sign for the Ernie Maxwell Scenic Trail that is very popular with hikers. Take the scenic trail for no more than 10-15 minutes and then turn left onto the Climber's Trail. Climber's trail is well maintained and may have a sign or cairn, if you are lucky, and the entrance is roughly 5 minutes after the creek/pipes. The approach is basically straight up and takes 30-45 minutes until you arrive at lunch rock. You'll understand why everyone talks about how steep the approach is once you get there but at least it's a good trail. 

The crux is the first 40' of the climb. Start up a chimney then move into a nice crack system. The second and third pitches follow the crack system up to lunch ledge. From lunch ledge climb the crack to the runout 5.4 friction slab (1 bolt).
