Up shallow left-facing corner then reach up and right into thin, locker crack. Up to bushes. Variation left under mini roof and up is a bit harder and has not been led.

I led the left variation today. Not quite as easy for pro, but by no means dangerous. I felt it was maybe a bit more technical than the right, but not really any harder. I'd still rate it M4.

Both the left and the right variations are by far the best routes in this section of cliff. Super fun and secure hooking up a sinker thin crack. Doesn't get better than that. Oct 30, 2015
