Description [Edit]

P1: Follow a 5m section of lichen-covered rock to a wide crack that goes right into a clean, right-facing corner. Follow this to a large ledge. (30m 5.9) Alternatively you can continue up the lichencovered rock to a mossy/treed corner to the ledge (5.8).

P2: Go up the main right-facing corner to a belay just before a large roof. Good gear and fun laybacks and hand jams. (40m 5.10c)

P3: Continue through the roof and the corner to easier ground above and a tree belay. Watch your foot placement after the roof as there is a bit of lichen in sections. However the gear and hands are bomber. (30m 5.10b)

To Descend, rap off the trees on the right of the climb and scramble your way around the bluffs.

Location [Edit]

Follow the base of the cliff left until you reach a large overhang. To your right is a small chimney – scramble up that to gain a large, open ledge. Start in the right-facing corner.

Protection [Edit]

Standard rack.
