Description 

The southern most full-length route in the area starts below the vertical crack. The easier face moves bring you to a small roof that requires fist and hand jams to bypass (this is the crux). From here it is face climbing again. Watch out for bats that like to catch rays on this rock face. Also be careful tossing your rope down or dropping any gear, this route goes right over the main trail and is very close to the water.

Location 

Walking along the Lake Shore trail from the dam look for the obvious crack that runs up the middle of this south facing wall. It is where the space between rock face and lake is most narrow.

Protection 

I used a #2 hex, blue tricam, and some nuts in the 10 to 13 range. Top roping would require at least 50 feet of rope/webbing because the trees are set back.
