Description

Nice little crux right off the ground with small crimpers all they way to the top. While it is on to use the crack at the top, staying on the face holds is very fun.

Location

about five feet to the right of Rock Dove and a couple feet left of the prominent right leaning crack at the bottom.

Protection

Top rope only, not real leadable.

Two distinct starts to this one - left and right. They come together where you pull the roof. Both *very* fun with small but positive crimps just where you need them. Tricky feet. Sep 23, 2012

someone pulled a bunch off blocks from the foot rail under the overhang, making surmounting the overhang a bit tougher. Bring a brush up to clean off the rail. Sep 30, 2009

This is a stellar route. From the bottom it looks there there are no holds at all but as soon as you start up it all the holds become apparent. Sep 29, 2009
My friends and I named Picnic and climbed it back in the late seventies. Likely an FA, but who knows? Aug 14, 2009

Tried this in May when the warm weather hadn't dried things up yet, and I felt like I was on a slip and slide. You definitely have to wait for things to dry up since it faces North or else your feet will be sliding all over the bottom section. Jul 11, 2008
