Quite easy for the first half, maybe 5.4. Climb up a selection of cracks and features to a small alcove, pull a jug and then you're into the real climbing.

The thin seam at the top provides some thoughtful moments for the 5.9 leader. Gear is solid though, takes great nuts. The face is featured enough to keep the grade down.


On the (climber's) left section of the crag. You'll probably notice two thin seams on the upper part of the crag. One is above two bolts (It's Not Easy Being Green), the other is to the left of that one. Climb under the one to the left.


Anything you want for the bottom section, small stuff (wires, cams as small as blue metolius...maybe you could place smaller if you wanted). Chains at the top.
