Description

From the carriage road, scramble up to the arete. Climb the arete, then step right and pull the overhang at a diagonal right-rising crack, then up to a ledge. Zig right, up one short face, then traverse back left and top-out.

Not much to build an anchor from (no cracks or boulders and mostly protected pitch pines) save a short oak tree.

Easy walk-off to the left.

Location

This is the second climb you encounter when walking from the West Trapps lot after the Colorful's Boulder on your right. Round the turn with the sandy hill on your left and it starts at the end of the first cliff you encounter on the left.

Protection

Standard Gunks rack.

The oak tree from the description is no longer short and makes a fine anchor. This is good for practicing safety skills, but not much reason to do it otherwise. Nothing special going on here. I'd choose Cordalette Arete next door over this. May 16, 2018
