Pitch 1

Description 

First pitch goes up an easy dihedral to behind a bush. Second pitch involves climbing up onto a flake on the left, and climbing the slab around the corner up into a roof-type feature with a bush. Up around the next corner to a stout bush belay. Rappel from here if possible.

One can continue for another pitch to a large ledge somewhere above, covered in loose rock. More scrambling leads to the summit.

Location 

Route runs up noticeable easy dihedral on right side of east face of wall.

Protection 

-Offset nuts (small is best)
-Single rack of cams, from small (.1 X4) to #4 with doubles from .5-2.
-50m rope probably fine. Longer if you want to rappel.
-Helmet
-Maybe a wiffle bat

I'd like to file a complaint. First off, you're sexually objectifying clowns AND wiffle bats. Third off, it's like totally 5.2 because I'm so cool.

Check your privilege, Taco.
