Description 

A MIGHTY WIND 5.3 *** 75'’ F (7b)
From the lowest point on the buttress (right of the alcove with the Service Berry and Poison Ivy) begin at the diagonal crack and climb up and slightly left to the 2 short chain anchors over the top. This and Tootie Fruity would make for a great practice gear lead (a range of cams can be placed near the bolts), with sustained very nice climbing on mostly excellent, clean rock.

Location 

2nd from right.

Protection 

fixed - 7 bolts (although some gear is possible)

Unfortunately the poison ivy near the base of this route is not a temporary or seasonal condition. Although the base can be reached by walking along the log from the SW and so avoid the ivy, it would still be difficult to keep your rope out of it...
