DescriptionThis is a nice, very obscure, very well hidden short easy trad route. It is a left facing dihedral that is initially a finger crack which widens to hands and eventually wider but by the then you are climbing the featured face.
The top out is exciting and exposed.
LocationWhen you reach the split for Lumpy Wall at the large boulder continue along Little East Fork of Indian Creek. Cross a tributary and continue until you come to another tributary coming in from the north. Leave the main creek and hike up the ridge on the east side of the second tributary. Youll pass through a cool pine grove and eventually come to a dense rhododendron thicket at the base of a cliff. Thrash around to the left keeping close to the wall. Look for one of two recesses with three short cracks. Ascend to the ledge halfway up the cliff and traverse right, back toward the main point, looking for a distinct low angle, left facing dihedral.
