Description [Suggest Change]

A fun little route. The rock's a bit different than you'd find at the rest of the Shield. Fun patina-like edges and some pockets/horizontals. A good warmup.

Location [Suggest Change]

Just before the main approach trail hits the cliff base, look for a small spur trail shooting off left. Follow this into the forest and to the base.

Protection [Suggest Change]

Take draws. Rap bolts on top.

Short but fun climb. Thin edging for a 5.7. Aug 1, 2009

...yeah, awesome route. I agree, a bit thin for 5.7, but fun place to cool down and relax once the sun hits the rest of the Shield. Dec 16, 2010

Skip this slippery 5.7 and warm up on the 5.8 (Hoi Polloi) on the far right side of the crag. Jun 6, 2018
