It is a nice face climb. There is no defined crux.


This route is located 5 feet right of Gargoyle. It is the smooth face climb between Gargoyle and Hitch Hike.

I think this climb is neat. It hidden in the little pocked which is perfect to get away from the crowds. Great pro for rapping off a TR, a massive tree and a 10 foot sling that can be rapped around an attached boulder. Not very high at 40 ft but you can climb 4 routes with the top rope and the 5.7 being the hardest. Good place to take a beginner climber. Be sure to secure yourself before setting up the TR anchor because it gets a bit tight. The 40fter onto rocks will kill you without a doubt. If this route was vertical it would be a very hard route to climb.
