DescriptionLots of fun moves -- more if do the harder start.
Directional protection placement needed for Top-Roping.
Most interesting, but harder (5.5), is to start on the Left side of the arete, with a tricky two-hands move to step Right around the arete onto the gentler ramp face. Otherwise start in the small dirt gully just left of the stone bench.
Next up the ramp along the left side of the obvious left-trending corner, then straight to the top (and for the final fun move, be sure to at least get both hands up onto the top of the cliff).
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).
LocationThe arete which forms the right edge of a giant overhanging corner with small cave. Just left of a small dirt gully which is just left of a stone bench.

ProtectionTop-Roping: For ideas on how to set up top anchor, see the sector description page.
warning: Top-rope needs a directional protection placement (perhaps with long slings around a rock?)
Protection for Trad leading is unknown and likely inadequate.
