Description [Suggest Change]

Fun route and good lead for the difficulty. The easiest route on the NW Bluff Follow the right facing crack all the way up. The crux is down low and the route as a whole is well protected. Rock quality is good until the top where a couple spots are broken and blocks could go.

Location [Suggest Change]

This route is located to the left of The Bulge on the NW Bluff past the access gully. The first right facing corner that looks climbable is it. To get down take the access gully on climber's right.

Protection [Suggest Change]

Protection to 3 inches. Belay off gear or trees at the top.

Believe this should be marked as TR-able as well. There's a nice crack up on top of the bluff for a few pieces of gear, me and a few friends have top managed it several times Jun 9, 2018
