Description

Interesting easier moves in lower section, then creative harder moves in the upper section.

Start up the corner. Cross a dirty ledge, then up the face to finish at the cap rock.

Variation - "Track of Tears" (5.9-): After finishing up the corner, traverse right about six feet on the dirty ledge, then up mossy wet face to finish on right side of cap rock.

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 2016. Be prepared when climbing to navigate around protruding trees and branches, and dealing with holds slippery with grass, lichen, moss, dirt).

Location

Corner about 12-18 inches deep facing somewhat left, which is four feet right of a healthy tree 8-10 inches in diameter, which is about eight feet right of the obvious ridge coming down south from the top of the Nose.
