Description

This route is most often climbed to reach the upper tier, where there are some quality, short pitches.

Start up the low angle dihedral and engage the steep, crux dihedral. A fist jam allows you to reach the solution hold. Follow low angle rock for another 100 feet to the upper tier, which is on the right. Another short pitch to the left will access the top of the formation.

Location

This route starts just to the left of Country...Swing in a RF dihedral behind the large tree.

Protection

Gear to #3.

Dirty, vegetated, sharp and substantially harder than the grade would indicate. Wouldn't wish it on anyone. The version described in Kelman's 2003 guide (start in the chimney/cave and work up toward the left) may be preferable. Jul 31, 2011
