Description

Interesting moves (not just straight up).

Up the fins trending left (but passing rigth of bulge about 10-15 ft up). Higher up step right onto wide ramp and up that to the top platform.

warning: The rock on and near this route has not been climbed much yet, and some of the rock is still breakable and loose -- so the belayer and other people should stand far away from underneath the climber or someone setting up top anchor.

. . . (Lots of vegetation on this rock as of 2018. Be prepared when climbing to navigate around protruding trees and branches, and dealing with holds slippery with grass, lichen, moss, dirt).

Location

Start a few feet right of the obvious irregular wide crack / gully that curves up left.

Protection

Lead: standard Trad rack: FA leader placed small-to-med stopper, couple of small-to-medium cams, #3 Camalot tightly compressed (#2 iikely would have been better), and a sling around small tree-trunk.
It's PG-13 in the sense that if you fall you'll likely get injured because it's a less-than-vertical climb with lots of protruding features to hit. On the other hand the placements are about spaced about as you'd expect on many "well-protected" Trad routes. If don't believe the small tree-trunk will hold then the upper slab section is unprotected.

Top-Rope: For ideas how to set up anchor for Top-Roping, see Description page for this sector Steele.
