DescriptionA great route showcasing typical climbing at the park.
Jam up an 8 foot perfect hand crack, swing over right and mantle to a ledge. Step up left towards a thin left leaning crack and carefully get in a piece of gear (I think a red c3 did the trick). Commit to the crack, clip a piton and move left on worsening holds until you're at a mono crimp. Another big move left finds juggy climbing back right up a crack to a spruce tree anchor. Lower off.
Stepping into the crux crack can be a little spooky on this one but the holds are good to start and once the piton is clipped the crux is about as well protected as it gets, small falls.
