Description

This is a narrow face that invites one to test its holds as you approach the East Quarry from the Eastern parking lot/trailhead. The line as it's chalked and how it seems to flow seems to make one feel it's a bit contorted as you get drawn out left at 1/3 height. Eventually you get drawn back into the middle of the narrow face at half height. The holds are a bit rounded, so a hot day may have you sliding off. Finish at a two bolt anchor with links.

Note, a warm day may make this feel 5.11 as you try to avoid sliming off the slippery buggers down low.

Location

This is a narrow face in an alcove to the right of most of East Quarry and Emilia's Corner. It has an obviously climbable crack just to the right and a small pillar of sorts on its left.

Protection

A 2 bolt anchor lies right above this face. You can lead Crack to the right to set this up...until/unless someone decides to bolt this.
