DescriptionInteresting moves first in a narrow dihedral or chimney, then over a bulge, then up a face.
Start straight up the dihedral / V-chimney (hint: more fun if stay toward outside, not "get buried" in it). Up a ways to the center of the overhanging bulge. Up a ways to the final face -- take this 3-5 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).
LocationThe obvious (low-right-side) 5-foot-wide dihedral or V-chimney, below an overhang/bulge about 25 feet up.
