DescriptionPitch 1 (5.6): follow the bolts through a few vertical sections on crumbly holds. Moves feel harder than they are due to the quality of the rock.
Pitch 2 (5.5): Do one interesting move and then hike up the tufts of grass to a ledge (note: it is possible to hike to this ledge to bypass the first two pitches).
Pitch 3 (5.10d or 5.8 A0). Perform an awkward traverse before coming to a short but steep wall. Pull through it to a jug and continue to the anchors.
Pitch 4 (5.7): Pleasant varied climbing takes you up to a hidden anchor (when you feel that you have run out of bolts look down and to your left around a block).
Pitch 5 (5.7): Continue up a grassy bit to an interesting right facing crack/corner system. The anchors are at the top.
