Description [Edit]

A stem box with a good crack and plenty of loose face holds. I barely touched the wall on the left near the top and a couple of basket ball sized rocks fell away over my head, I pulled back and they passed by my face within inches.
I thought this was harder then 10a, but maybe when cleaner it will feel more friendly.
Maybe 3 stars after cleaning.

Location [Edit]

It is pretty difficult to explain where this is. The most obvious landmark is a roof about 30' east of this that were formed when the lower rock blew out and is a decades old rock slide, and then this route looks like a wide chimney on the left side of a narrow prow that juts out. There is a big buttress below this that divides the talus slopes below.

Protection [Edit]

a range of cams up to #2. No anchor, but good cam options from #.5- #2. at the top.
