Canopy

Description 

Start ontop of the large block on the left most corner of the main cliff (right side of the West facing alcove). Follow a diagonal crack up and right until it meets a horizontal one. Follow a thin crack up a face to a good ledge (crux), and then follow a right leaning crack with a detached slice of rock sticking out.

TR Varitation: When you reach the final ledge with the blade sticking out, follow the arete of the over hanging face to the top (5.11-) or fire up the middle of the face (5.12-).
