DescriptionInteresting moves in a variety of rock situations.
Up into the dihedral with crack and flake, but instead of continuing up that to the roof, step left to the edge of left face of the dihedral, then over that and left up the face to a big ledge. Up the left side of the face (just right of big right-facing corner) to the top.
. . Variation (one 5.10b move): up the center right of upper face 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).
LocationAbout 10-12 feet left of arete in center (lowest point) of main (SW) side of sector, below left from a 2.5ft-deep dihedral / open book just above, just below a wide book somewhat L-facting, with flake and 1-2-inch crack which leads up to a 1.5-ft-deep roof.
