Description

The easy crux is at the start where it's a bit slabby, but it's low angle (all about feet). No worries, though, once you get into the pod, it's smooth sailing. Head up and out of the pod, follow the crack and anchor off the large oak tree, on the left. This climb flows well and takes gear really well.

The tree at the base has been cut back, but if it's grown back, getting through the branches is the real crux.

As hard as we've tried, no where on this route is there a man named Simon to give you beer.

Protection

Standard rack. This climbs so smoothly, that you need to remember to place gear.

This is a very nice, well-protected beginner crack for practicing a few of your offwidth techniques midway up (stacked fists, hand/fist, etc.). May 12, 2014
