Description

Start in a wide slot behind a pine tree. It has an assortment of cracks for protection. Climb over a small roof, and continue up broken cracks past another pine tree. The top gets a little dirty. This is called 5.5, but it felt more like 5.7 at the little roof capping the slot.

Location

Just uphill from the Devo corner, adjacent to Pepe le Peu, look for a wide slot behind a substantial pine tree.

Protection

A standard rack. There are several trees near the topout for anchoring.
