DescriptionInteresting moves up short faces separated by ledges.
Basically .. climb three feet left from the dihedral / V-chimney route the whole way up. Start just left of the dihedral / V-chimney (arete is "on"). Up a ways to the center of the overhanging bulge. Delicate moves starting up left side of bulge, then over its top. Up a ways to the final face -- take this 6-8 feet left of the cap stone.
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).
LocationJust left of the obvious (low-right-side) narrow dihedral / V-chimney.
