DescriptionLots of thoughtful moves with unusual rock structures. Even more if add Variation 1 from the same TR anchor.
Start in the alcove near R end of ledge.
. . Variation 1 also interesting, same difficulty: Start up the arete which is out to left.
Diagonal up left along ramp to reach left end of roof as above.
. . Variation 2: The featureless face below left from the ramp. (5.9+)
Straight up past roof into L-facing corner and up that a bit. Then big step Right around corner (crux) into face, up that to top.
. . Variation 3 easier: Continue up in L-facing corner 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).
LocationIn a big deep alcove / chimney partway up the cliff, about 15-20ft R of arete with 2ft-wide protruding block about four feet up.
