A fun, but short route up a slab to a thinning finger crack. Good moves, low commitment, and good protection.
Start in the small clearing at the base. Begin dead-center, with a short series of moves up a clean, blank slab. Catch a left facing flake and head to the crack proper. Pull a bulge and get a rest before the final left-leaning finger crack. Stop on a big ledge at a sling anchor.
Early morning sun / afternoon shade.
