Description

This is one of those trad lines on the right side of the crag. It appears easier than it climbs. There are places on this route from which you don't want to fall.

P1. Start right of a tree near a crack beginning above the ground. The first bulge can be done directly, but it would be noticeably harder than the rating given here. I went right after placing a cam and feeling out the slopers above the bulge. Connect back left into the crack. Climb a trickier-than-it-looks-to-protect flare. Move up to another little bulge with jugs left above a ledge. Surmount the final bulge above a ledge (right is easier) to a belay ledge.

P2. This second pitch may be shared by a number of the trad lines on this side of the crag. Move left into an inviting, leaning dihedral with big holds. Gain a ledge. Boulder over another ledge at a horn. FWIW, you may be able to traverse off right after 1 pitch.

Walk off to the right and angle gently towards the backside of the crag.

Location

This essentially climbs the middle of three cracks/grooves on the right side of the crag and then moves left to surmount the top overhang.

Protection

We used a rack with a yellow Alien, #0.5-#4 (old size) Camalots, and #10 & #11 hexes. Long slings can be useful.
