Diagonal up right on rock just above ground for about eight feet to below perched 2.5-ft-wide block. Directly up over the perched block, next up small R-facing corner. A bit left up to big R-facing corner, and up that to top.
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 - (and if possible, behind a large tree).
. . . (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).
LocationAt bottom of the arete which is the edge between the main face and the southeast face, at the right side of a giant roof.
