DescriptionInteresting fun moves with variety -- but too short.
Up the corner to roof. Work up around left side of roof. Step left to tree. Up L side of small corner. Stop when get hands on horizontal ledge -- because getting all the way to top of cliff is much harder.
. . Variation "Durs McClimb": Just after getting past roof, instead of going left to tree, go straight up between the two small corners (5.8) - (FA Stephen Bittner).
. . Harder more interesting finish to the Variation: Somewhat below top of cliff, traverse Right five ft then up (5.9)
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 2017. Be prepared when climbing to navigate around protruding trees and branches, and dealing with holds slippery with grass, lichen, moss, dirt).
LocationWell-defined Right-facing corner below roof. About 30-35 left of obvious D J E A crack and four ft R of tree 8-10 ft up from ground. (Same as climb to Right).
