Description"Are you guys going straight up the middle of that?" - A hiker with his kids.
The most obvious route to the top going straight up the middle of the face. Most of the climbing is significantly easier than 5.7 with a couple of crux moves which are close to the bolts. The moves are fun, and although it is not an instant classic this would be a great spot to get a taste of multipitch or work on your skills.
From the top you can either rap back to the base or top out and take the established hiking trail all the way back down.
The rock on the route is solid but there is still some moss and dirt which we will be working to clean a little more. Some traffic will do it the world of good!
