DescriptionInteresting climbing, but crux move is significantly harder than the rest.
Up to the bottom of corner/crack, then diagonal up right. Before reaching the level of the roof, step right (crux) across into steep (overhanging?) gully, and up that to gentle section. Trend a bit left with easier climbing to the top.
. . Variation: Start up the center of the face (5.8)
name of book: Sally Burnaby series.
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 15-20 feet right up from low point of rock of this sector, under obvious corner/crack starting about 10-15 feet up.
