Description

This easy, but fun climb follows the last quartzite crest of rock before it deteriorates into shale which indeed it does a few meters to the north. A 20-25 minute approach hike should get you there. 

Pitch #1: Climb the bulge passing a couple of bolts to a ledge and rap station. You can easily continue on to the top (beware of rope drag) of the climb or belay here if with kids or beginners. Two bolt belay. 5.5, short.

Pitch #2: Follow the fixed protection up the fun arete like spur passing obvious bolts to another two bolt belay. 5.5, 30m. 

Rappel the route. 

Location

This is found at the far north end of the little canyon right at the edge of the quartzite/shale border line. The trail kind of ends there as well. AP starts at a steepish step on the east face of end of the quartzite rock with an obvious bolt. 

Protection

QDs for about 10 bolts. Supplementary Camalots / Nuts may also be helpful.
