The route starts out with easy climbing and plenty of stances and reaches a sustained vertical section of about 20 ft mid-climb before easing off at the top section. The top out gets kind of confusing since there is a lot of brush and small trees. You can also traverse right and meet up with the top of Arm & Hammer. Great route for a new leader to move beyond NEI 3.


Just to the left of Arm & Hammer the route begins just above the large tree at the top of the drainage gully above the beaver pond.


Usually pretty fat so nothing special.
