Looks like it would be a good crack climbs from below but after the initial start the cracks are filled with dirt and medium angle slab climbing is required instead. It's a little bit sketchy because of the pine tree needles that collect on the slab slopes. I stayed pretty close to the cracks so I could edge my feet on them. There's a few cracks to choose from. I pick one nearest the center of the white rock wall. Unique to the area because it is devoid of the typical horizontal breaks and slightly discomforting insecure hand and foot holds. Friction on the slabs as a separate line, away from the cracks would require bolting.


Central rock band with pine trees instead of hardwoods beneath and on it.


Trad gear and then run out with some small pine trees to sling. Walk left towards the narrow descent gully of Westside Avenue and descend it. My least liked area to climb.
