Description

Though often wet I highly recommend it if you find it dry. I was quite pleasantly surprised at the quality of the climbing since I've never heard much good said about it.

Here are the pros:
Great movement
Well protected
Conveniently located
Never crowded

Cons:
Often wet
Not as clean as They Died Laughing
A loose block or two

So you can make your own call. Your mission, should you choose to except it, begins in the corner capped by a roof, to the left of the popular section of the North End.
Climb moderate moves up the corner until you can gain cracks and jugs on the right wall. Climb these wonderful features to the right end of the roof over your head. Continue up the corner above for another 10-15 feet to a nice ledge.

You can belay/rap from here via a sling on tree anchor, or continue (straight up or up and right) to a two-bolt anchor above. Several nice pitches can be accessed from there.

Location

Corner capped by a big roof on the left side of the North End.

Regular Rack.
Bolted rap station (if some moron hasn't chopped it)
