Description

A good route, especially the upward leaning crack on the second pitch. It has some fun climbing and good exposure.

P1 (5.6, 120'): Start up an easy slab, aiming for a tree in vertical rock. It's possible (maybe a little harder than the grade, to avoid using the tree altogether. From there, continue up easier ground past a bolt to a two-bolt rap anchor beneath the crack of P2.

P2 (5.8+, 50'): A short but fun pitch. Start under the roof, making an awkward move to get established in the crack. Possible to protect this move with really small or slightly large pro (4" probably - we didn't have on). From there climb up the crack. Fun movement throughout. Stop at a nice belay with a 2 bolt anchor.

From here, a double-rope rappel will take you back to the ground or with the addition of Flight of the Manatee, you can now do this in two single-rope rappels. Two other finishes will also take you to the top of the cliff (recommended).

Location

The next main clearing about 150' to the right of the Quartz Crack area. It starts on at a pretty good base area that drops off steeply to the right.

Protection

Standard trad rack.
