Description

Some interesting moves.

Start about 6 ft left of the bottom of obvious central gully,
Straight up to the perched triangular block (without using smaller lower block jammed in the gully about 8 ft up. Around left side of both perched blocks. Finish over upturned nose which is left from below 6-inch-thick tree at top of cliff.

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).
