Description [Suggest Change]

A hard start for the grade. Can cheat start to the right a few feet and cut back left on a ledge a few feet up. The direct start is the route, however. About 30 feet up, cut left on a fortuitous hand traverse, bushwack around some bushes, and follow a nice corner up and to the top.

Location [Suggest Change]

Start about 20 feet left of Old Number Nine by two small trees with a discontinuous crack above leading to a small roof. Cut left at the roof and traverse below and around bushes. Easier to the top.

Protection [Suggest Change]

Adequate gear for leading to 3 ". Placing pro at the start will likely fill the best jams. Extra small gear. Extra slings.
