Description

Up the crack, then figure out what to do with the tree obstructing the top.
(? much harder if do not use the tree ?)

warning: The rock on and around this route has not been climbed much yet, and much of the rock is still breakable and loose -- so the belayer and other people should stand far away from underneath the climber.

. . . (Lots of vegetation on this rock as of 2014. Be prepared when climbing to navigate around protruding trees and branches, and dealing with holds slippery with grass, lichen, moss, dirt).

Location

A crack leaning slightly right-ward. About five feet right of Crimp Crack, with a foot-wide tree fallen down over it.

Protection

Top-Rope only. Likely requires long static line.

Perhaps this route had a more interesting and difficult finish before the big tree fell down over it.
Sharon and I did not find it very worthwhile in 2014. Sep 27, 2014
