Description

Two interesting roof sequences, and some other moves.

Get up onto a wide ledge, then up the left-facing corner and finish left (or right?). Next up to chimney on right side of the high prow (and on left side of a roof). Up the chimney and up over its top (right-ish?). Then easier slab to the 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.

. . . (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).

Location

Below an overhanging left-facing corner about eight feet right from the low prow which is under the high prow (which is about fifteen feet right from the right end of the obvious big roof).

Protection

Top-Rope: The obvious tree anchor points above are far back from the top edge of the cliff here, so need a long static line to set up top anchor -- or some cleverness.

Protection for trad Leading is unknown and likely inadequate.
