Description [Edit]

Nice enough moves, with a thoughtful traverse.

Up crack about five feet, then a couple of steps Left onto ramp. Easier up to the top, trending a bit right.

Variation 1: Start instead about four feet Left of corner/crack, and work hands up Left on ramp (5.7).

Variation 2: Start instead about four feet Left of corner/crack and get hands on ramp -- then instead move hands Left to beyond steeper part of ramp, then up onto gentler part of ramp (5.8).

warning: Loose rock is still a concern here. Belayer or other members of party should not stand anywhere near underneath the climber.

. . . (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).

Location [Edit]

Obvious right-facing corner/crack that goes up roughly vertical to left side of little cap roof - (same as "Right Crack").

Protection [Edit]

For ideas how to set up Top-Rope, see description of this Tulpehocken sector.

Protection for Trad leading is unknown and likely inadequate.
