Description

The crux is the first 25 to 30 feet of the climb, seeing as you can not place any pro until you reach the left moving horizontal crack. Climb the flake up to work the horizontal crack until you reach a vertical crack towards the left side of the wall. There should be two parallel cracks here, both are great for pro. Number 3 is key to protect you from a deck. Be careful of rope drag, but don't extend your pieces to much as there is a ledge underneath you.

Location

From Honey Hollow head in towards Leathermans cave. This climb is located on the front side of the wall directly back from the road. There is a good size tree directly in front of the start of the climb, with a 8 to 10 foot high ledge immediately to your left.

Protection

standard rack, doubles of .75 and 3's are good. No bolts or fixed gear. You are able to top out.

If you look carefully at both of those walls, you'll notice signs of past cleanings (from 30 years ago), i.e. small stumps at the foot of routes etc. Everything there has been climbed, even the huge roof on the upper crag with the hand/fist crack through it. Dec 9, 2015

These climbs have all been lead by people over the years. I'm not apposed to trying to consistently come up with names for them them on MP but you are certainly not the first person to climb this route. May 17, 2012
