DescriptionStand-start on the huge shelf/block at the bottom, then use the edge and cracks in the face to climb the lichen-y wave up and right to top out in the corner. It's technically easy, but it's also tall, exposed, and beautiful.
The rock took a little cleaning but is fairly solid. The colorful lichen isn't really an issue for climbing, it just added aesthetics.
A more complete problem could start from the ground instead of the shelf but would be a bit contrived.
DISCLAIMER: I just moved to the area, so am not sure if I'm the first one to climb this route. Please suggest a correction if you have better info. I just didn't see any signs of cleaning or chalk when I climbed it. Also, I'm not much for grading. No promises on the V1 mark.
