DescriptionInteresting moves, and the variation is also worthwhile.
Up the right side of blocks to a wide ledge. Step across to base of a ramp going diagonal Left. Up the ramp, and a bit before its top step Right onto a platform. Up over another platform to the top.
Variation: When reach the wide platform ... (instead of going to base of ramp) step across to the face above, and see two lines of weakness (or wide irregular grooves perhaps with some corners). Roughly straight up the right line of weakness.
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).
LocationAt a low wall 8-10 feet high below a wide ledge which is to right from under the wide chimney with a roof.
