Description

Climb up blocky features to a vegetated crack. Climb the crack to the top.

Variation 1(5.6 PG): Climb the face to the left of the vegetated crack, moving through several discontinuous cracks to the top.

Location

The route starts uphill(right) from the main cliff below a vegetated crack.

Protection

Takes good gear. I made a gear anchor in some cracks set back from the cliff edge. A static rope could be useful. Trees can be used for a directional.

Almost looks easy enough from the bottom to solo it, I recommend a rope. Aug 15, 2017

I have climbed the face numerous times on a solo top rope. If you go up the middle and avoid the right-side edge, not using it for footholds or handholds, the crux seems harder than 5.6. May 26, 2014
