Access Issue: Access is always an issue here. Details
Please do not litter and observe all regulations. We had to fight to regain access at one time, and we don't want to lose the privilege again. Local ethics and refuge regulations are that no bolting is permitted unless expressly authorized by the park. Leave the hammer and nails at home, no fixed gear please. Everything will go clean.
(Edited to reflect commentator views.) A clean, and very steep 5.6 crack/face climb using the crack for protection for the first 30 ft. The rock is solid "for first 30 ft"(with the exception of a hold 5 Ft off the deck) and protects easily for the first 30 ft. Not a great climb to learn Trad on even though it has a 5.6 rating. The easier (<5.5), but chossy dirty ledge climbing at the top is more difficult to protect. The crux is about 10 feet off the ground. Protect early to avoid sliding down the slab at the base. Note-one of the first holds starting out the climb is getting loose and may fall off soon. Use caution.
Climb the crack about 15 to the left of High Anxiety.
Nut, hexes, and cams to 2-3 inches. Trad anchor (bring webbing approximately 10 Ft to sling boulder) or use High Anxiety anchors with some rope drag.
