Description

Begins at an obvious crack to the right of the cave, starts off as a wide (fist sized) crack for the first fifteen or twenty feet with some thought provoking moves. Climb up to a large ledge and move right through a flake/crack feature onto the main face, climb easier ground to a large tree at the top which can be slung to top-rope off of. Walk off to the right

Protection

Standard trad rack, protects well...good route for beginners...no fixed gear or anchors

Hand crack into an off-width. The crack will spit you out when it is time to exit. Don't exit too early. Challenging climb. Apr 21, 2015

Pretty nice climb for the grade. Legit challenge calling for a variety of moves, and of course, per Bald standards, unparalleled rock quality. May 29, 2016
