Located on the far left side of the crag just left of March of Dimes.

Climbs a nice crack/flake on gear to a small stance and then continues up interesting and balancy face past bolts to anchors on the left side of a large ledge.

The anchors are on a ledge and due to the position there's some rope drag - perhaps best to rap off as opposed to lowering to spare your cord.


3 bolts, gear to 2", chain anchors

I found the crack start to be a little intimidating but there are several ways to negotiate it. The thin face climbing above is very fun! Top-belay and rap off.
