Start with the thin finger crack and continue to a mantle with a tree. Avoid touching the tree and continue up the corner groove to the bulge at the top.


Around the left side of the crag. Look for the obvious finger crack.


Gear to 1" - mostly smaller gear.

Any tips for the lower section? I found a few spots where I could finger lock, but much of it I felt my fingers were simply too fat. Ended up setting a TR and then traversing left and tip-toeing back right to get on route.
