Climb the first crack you see after turning left on the trail to the Grocery Store Wall. There is a tree right in front of the climb. Tackle the slightly overhanging crack (crux). Then finish on easier ground. It is easier to TR, as there is not much gear up high. If you try and lead this and fall, you will probably be impaled by the tree.

If you look in the 1987 "Climber's Guide to Castlewood Canyon" by Alan Mosiman, James Coffin is listed as getting the FA. Not sure when you climbed it- but I'd appreciate giving credit where it's due. Jan 2, 2012

Scott - Garrick went through a phase of listing a lot of routes and arbitrarily putting Tom down for the the FA w/out consulting Tom first. I remember that old guide from ages ago. It would be nice for posterity if you ran through the Grocery Store listings and corrected the FAs. Jan 3, 2012
