Description [Suggest Change]

This low angle face has a plethora of cracks, making it a good choice to work on gear placement. This climb works up a series of cracks along the left-side of the face. There are a few bulges mid-way up that are fun to pull over. Sticking to the crack allows for a wide range of holds including jams, lay-backs, and face holds. Head for the large maple tree on top and use it for a solid anchor.

Location [Suggest Change]

This route is currently covered in moss! Also the rock seems to favor nuts over cams! May 13, 2018

I don't think you really need gear over 1" for this route. Micro offset and/or micro nuts would probably come in handy. A good first trad lead, but needs more traffic. May 15, 2018

Lots of places for gear, but def needs more traffic! Anybody that wants to work on pro placement come on over and sew it up! May 18, 2018
