Stay inside the corner. Climb past projecting chockstone or traverse let to Balanced Rock. the route has solid hands and feet. There are plenty of options to get to the top. It is not climbed often and is a little dirty.


There are plenty of places to place protection. A standard rack of cams up to a BD #3 is sufficient for the climb. While rated as a 5.4 I would not recommend it for a first trad lead. The stances for placing pro are a little tricky.
