Description [Suggest Change]
Start on a crumbly and steep crack which is tough for the grade I think. Interesting move to get established, then I got in some small cams and nuts and progressed with some trouble. Above another 20 feet is a 6-7 foot hand crack through an A-frame roof. The hand crack continues another 12 feet or so to a ledge. The roof is really fun jamming and stemming, and probably three stars in itself. But given the limited variety at the crag and the lower quality start, I couldn't give this more than a single star total. Worth doing though.
Location [Suggest Change]
Locate a large chimney arching right to left, almost horizontal. The climb is at the far left where the chimney ends. Scramble off ledge climbers left to descend.
Protection [Suggest Change]
Small cams and nuts for start. The roof eats hand size gear.
