P1- Climb the corner, undercling the ceiling and then step left from the corner to 'good holds on a slab." Finish right over an overlap (pro). 80 ft 5.6 R
Rap the route.


Currently (2014) this is the Left most climb on the Left-Section, and thus the left most climb on the cliff. It is well left of the left end of the tree ramp, (this dirt tree ramp leads to the middle of P1 of "Pillars of Dickulese", above Bolt 1 and below Bolt2 of that climb) and thus it is well left of the "Pillars". Find the start of "Pillars" and walk left along the base of the cliff, looking for a shallow right-facing corner with a horizontal ceiling part way up. The climb is roughly half way between the start of the tree ramp and the far left end of the cliff.
