The guidebooks and route topos for this area stop describing routes at Route 7
but there is more entertaining climbing beyond that route. Climbed for many years, this line is a fun moderate that protects well.
Look up for a right-angling crack that splits a light tan/orange face on the left and a black face on the right. That's the goal. Start up in a boxed corner with dual cracks--the right crack protects the best. Stem and pull your way up and out of this box to a good ledge. Continue up fun face climbing with a nice crack for protection as you follow the right-angling crack to a small alcove. The difficulties are done. Cruise to the top, heading back a little left.
About 20 feet to the right of Route 7
past the small buttress at the cliff's base.
A set of nuts and small to medium-sized SLCDs. Two-bolt anchor with tan hangers at top.
