DescriptionFrom the topside of the obvious tree, up the obvious two-foot deep right-facing corner to finish up the left side of the mini-tower which protrudes below the cliff top.
When top-roping this route, it's simplest to finish by standing up on top of the mini-tower / turret. But can also climb to the top of the cliff, perhaps a bit awkward getting over top edge (not unusual for Powerlinez).
Warning: The rock on and around this route has not been climbed much yet, and much of the rock is still breakable and loose -- so the belayer and other people should stand far away from underneath the climber.
. . . (Lots of vegetation on this rock as of 2015. Be prepared when climbing to navigate around protruding trees and branches, and dealing with holds slippery with grass, lichen, moss, dirt).
LocationUpper Left sector. Hike diagonal-leftward up steep-ish gully to eight-inch tree. See Routes photo.
There is a less-steep waiting area just below left from tree (with a drop-off below, so might want to tether belayer or waiting climbers).
ProtectionTop-Roping: Instead of ascending the obvious steep + loose gully on left side of crag, easier to set up top anchor by going around bottom right (east) side of crag, then scramble up gully (diagonal left-ward) between this crag and the next crag to the east.
Protection for Trad leading is unknown.
