Description Suggest change

Pitch 1: 5.3 G Climb past the flake to the overhang, move left up past the overhang and move up onto the slab. Step up and run it out to the top. (45 ft.)

I found that the crux is establishing yourself onto the slab.  The route has no traffic whatsoever and is entirely lichen-dominated; which is why this climb does not come recommended.  If the lichen is even remotely wet/hydrated, it makes this one of the saddest and hardest 5.3s

Walk off down to the right of the climb.

Location Suggest change

It's the first route as you enter the area. The trail will mostly walk you past it and you just have to back track a little past independence.

Look for a four-foot high crack below two right-facing flakes (very obvious) which are the far right end of the cliff.

Protection Suggest change

eyeball it from ground.
