Description

A nice long sustained 5.7 in which you pull on holds resembling books not properly placed back on the shelf. Careful, I've witnessed a few climbers yank off chunks of rock. Make sure to warn any lost kayakers below. Move directly up the face following the path of least resistance.

Location

Top of the climb is a few feet upstream of the obvious tree on top of King.

This is a pretty nice climb. Includes a comfy belay ledge but does require your top managed skills to be up to snuff. Meanwhile the sustained 5-7 climbing right over the water is a pretty cool experience. Oct 19, 2017
