Description Suggest change

Find the small crack system leading to a small flake roof cliff left of Welcome To Crowders.

I tried to onsight this route but chunks of rock were falling out of the seam when I was trying to protect. I set up a top rope and had several people climb it. Much of the choss rock was removed and I cleaned the protection on a headpoint mock lead.

After cleaning off the protection spots on mock lead, I redpointed this route. Fun climbing, but still a bit of questionable rock. Great warm up for getting on Welcome To Crowders.

This route is seldom climbed but it has potential to be cleaned nicely since it has a bolted anchor. Access is somewhat easy if you climb Red Wall Chimney (cliff left).
