Did this in September and it was covered in leaves and lichen.


To the left of a sport project, in the corner and start is about 5 feet off of the ground. A very obvious crack system. Lower down.


Bolted anchor at top.

Bring nuts and a few cams up to 1" climbed the choked dihedral to the big ledge with bolt anchors above your head fun climb stays pretty consistent the entire way through getting a little hard through the last 10-15 feet where it gets more vertical with bad feet id your going to set a TR i like to set a directional off to the left
