Description

The start is about 3 foot tall flat pedestal next to the cliff, climb the two vertical cracks to a crux at the end of the cracks.  Finish on a usually dirty face with good edges that add a bit of an endurance crux.
This climb needs to be cleaned near the top every so often, If you take the time to clean it with a brush then the climb is much more enjoyable and stays pretty clean for a while depending on what the rain does with the dirt.

Sometimes people do an easier indirect finish to the right in a little dirty corner a little to the right.

2 Eliminates: If you're up for a challenge try climbing up this section of rock while just using one of the two cracks. The Left Crack might have an actual name by the first ascentionist but I like calling it "Ludwigs" (5.12). Ludwigs has a very fun and balancy technical crux at the end of the crack. This eliminate is a super hard onsight but once you know how to grab the holds and where to put your feet its much easier (like any technical crux). The right crack, "Dude" 5.11a (again, probably not the original name) does not get as many stars but go with what you get on the right crack using anything on the face as well. The last move on the crack is the crux to this one as well. Finish on the face for both of these.

Location

10 feet left of the small natural spring.
