Climb the large crack just left of "Just Another Roadside Attraction". Watch out for loose, grainy rock and questionably holds. Not more than 5.7 until a final groveling, humping move over a bulge to top out.

You can climb this, and afterwards you will be warmer, but I would hesitate to call it a warm-up.


Wide crack to the left of Roadsie Attraction. Walk off to the east.


Standard, you can fit a #4 if you feel so inclined. Some hand size for the anchor.
