Description

This route is clearly visible from the road. It's on the southern end of all the Cove Corridor formations, just left of Shaggy Dog. It is 2 short pitches, and has a short approach.
The first pitch is slabby and has a couple of bolts on it. The second pitch ascends a thin crack on aid. There is some fixed junk on the aid pitch, left by the first ascent party. One irritating thing about the aid pitch is this ramp that parallels the aid pitch at the start; constant reminder that you wouldn't want to pop a piece and hit the ramp.

Descent is down a crack/gully system to the south (tricky at the very bottom; maybe a short rappel at the end?)

This route is OK, sort of safe, and somewhat fun and interesting. (Still want to do it?)

Gear- you decide. Bring aid gear, and some stuff to set up a gear belay at the top of pitch one. Maybe a few pins?

Location

Right side of W. Face of So.Section of Cave Rock, just left of Kurt Smith's Shaggy Dog.
