Description 

This route is in the vein of adventure climbing the rock is dirty and some people might not think the rock to be to quality but I enjoyed the route. it stars on a long slab to a long 3rd class ledge were we belayed for a small part. you then climb through a chiminey to a corner that leads to a cave the rock here is sketch and is also the crux of the route. try and arange a belay in the cave then exit out onto the face and finish with a 100 foot pitch . walk off along ways either way.

Location 

the central largest section of cliff

Protection 

standard trad rack to a #1 camolot lots of small pro

a #2 would not hurt. i think we placed it twice.

If you do this route, beware for pitch 3. The belay is shit, lots of loose rock, and yes improvise!

With the exception of the cave that you have to use on the last belay stance, the route is getting cleaner. The third pitch isn't too bad.
