Description

Good route for training beginning trad climbers or topropers. Short route that's easy to protect with good rests. Face climbing to a ledge on the right. Scramble past the 1st bush to 10ft of stemming, passing the 2nd bush along the way. Make it over a crux bulge, climb 10ft more and top out. Some vegetation but, overall, a fun climb.

Location

Closer to the down-walk from the rim than Griffo. Come back only about 25ft back on the trail toward the rim overlook. Look for the blocky base of the cliff with a flat area 5ft wide in front of it and a tree. Very close to the access trail. Not mentioned in guides.

Protection

Easy to protect with a just handful of gear: 3 or 4 midsized nuts and a couple 1-2" cams. Tree and cracks make it easy to setup an anchor at the top.
