Description

This climb looks like it will be harder than 5.8 when seen from the bottom. However, there are big jugs in the places it looks difficult. You use the crack for protection but not very much for holds. The rock quality is not very good during most of the climb. At the top, the anchor tree will be to the right.

Location

This is the furthest left (north) route at the crag. It starts in a right-facing dihedral. There is a number "5" painted on the rock at the start.

Descend by walking off to the south (right).

Protection

Standard rack. Anchor to a tree at the top.

From base to rim, this route is about 120 feet long. The tree is another 10 feet back from the rim. Good pro isn't easy to find on the route. Dec 5, 2014

Although I think the route is less than the 120' in George's comment, it seemed best to belay the second from the top to avoid the rope running over sharp edges at the top of the wall. Even though I found many good nut and cam placements, I agree that it was sometimes hard to find good ones from positions with a good stance. Jun 4, 2017
