Description

Not the best climb on the crag but solid climbing on all the pitches,however an interesting group of climbers were involved in this first ascent.A direct line up the left side of the crag. The main difficulties on P2 are short but committing. Starts up a crack just right of the start of Fools Paradise.P1).Climb the groove on the right as for Fools (p2b) then continue up the steep crack to an oak tree belay.75'5.7(4c)P2)Climb directly up broken cracks above the blay to a large block at 25'. From the top of the block committing move over a bulge,then easier climbing leads to a small oak on a ledge. 65' 5.9. P3)From the belay ledge ,traverse a few feet to the right passing under the finale arete of Kaleidoscope ,to a holly tree.
