Primarily an up route used for developing the area

But this little guy can be challenging. Consider anchoring your belayer to the tree as the hill below is steep.

Easy climbing to the first bolt. From here is the crux. With your left foot higher up on the ledge take your right hand and mantle on the corner which is also an undercling. As you push up with your left foot keep your balance on the sloper straight over your head and on the arte. Then get your right foot to where your right hand is. Then while keeping your left hand on the sloper, move your left foot to where the right foot is. The rest is footwork with some tiny hand holds.


Two bolts, anchors.
Old rope and two non-locking opposed carbiners for lowering.
