Description 

Low Start on a diagonal about a foot or two above the small cave to the right. Traverse left on low feet before throwing a high hand on the ledge above you (its better in the back of the ledge) and throw a high foot to the chest high ledge on your left mantle up and grab the line of jugs leading out to the right. You could follow the crack line left but that has no definite finish and puts you in the 20+ foot fall range as the ground slopes away. Either way the grade would likely stay the same. Simple and fun little route open to variation and to the height described stays dry in the rain. Which is how we found the route in the first place.

Anyway thought Id throw this up as a fun route for rainy days or in between routes if your the odd man out.

Location 

This route is found in the small cave behind P-7. If you walk in from Barking Spiders and walk into the cave look to your left for a left leaning crack line coming down the middle of the wall to a small ledge. That ledge is 3/4 of the way up the problem. Im sure people have done something in this area but never named anything so try not to take the FA too seriously its a V0-1. Anyway very fun if you get caught by the rain and want something to do. I figured this had to start a trad route but haven't seen anything so have at it.

Protection 

One Pad is fine two would be nice. if you fall try and go to your butt fast as the pad will slide so trying to land standing either sends you jogging down the slope or crashes you back anyway so better to just go for it. A spotter is always nice too.
