Follow the lichenous, somewhat crumbly crack system, pulling over a slight bulge near the top.


Start right of Up Above It and the small, short roof extending to its right. I don't believe this is the wider crack on the far right of the face, which actually looked better from the ground.

Walk off the back of the crag.


Gear to 3", no bolted anchors.

I don't think this deserves a bomb, but it is not great. Maybe a good warm-up for the crag, but it is not a destination climb. The crux is near the top, and the rest felt about 5.7 in difficulty. Sep 24, 2014
