Description 

The namesake route on the crag follows a left leaning crack which passes a tree and a small roof (crux) and ends on the left shoulder of the crag. It does not involve much true crack climbing, but it is indeed quite clean and has good pro. Not a classic but a worthwhile climb.

From the sloping ledge, you can continue up the thin crack on the steep headwall (10b) to finish on top of the formation or to make a short 2nd pitch.

cool V-slot overhang crux. cams from 000 C3 to Red #1 C4. Yellow #2 not really needed, tho one could use that in its rare nut mode up at the finish for a fun placement. easy walkoff down the left shoulder ramp and gully talus back to base
