DescriptionInteresting + rather fun sequence.
Get established in the alcove, then through its roof, and straight to the top.
Descent: Either bring slings/cord + rings to construct a rappel anchor (at least one nice rock horn or hole above top of Affordable Care.
Or scramble off to the south (4th class exposed) -- see intructions for Top-Rope access on sector 8 description page.
warning: The rock in this sector 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.
LocationAlcove with slightly-overhanding broken face and crack above, about 25 feet left from right (S) end of sector. About eight feet right of a shallow thinner right-leaning crack. About eight feet left from crack more than one foot wide at bottom.

ProtectionNo fixed hardware for top anchor or for leading as of 2016.
Leading: Protection for Trad leading is unconfirmed so far, but the Top-Rope First-Ascensionist felt that it should protect reasonably with a standard Trad rack.
Top-Rope: Various rock holes or horns available for top anchor.
For access to top of cliff see ideeas on sector 8 description page.
