BETA PHOTO: A shot of the full climb

Description 

Probably the most obvious line on right side of the crag, it follows the inside corner on the south side of the prominent jutting block. An interesting combination of stemming on the left and so-so holds on the right.

The first crux is right off the deck. A damp area complicates matters. The next crux is the center section. Use the finger crack and whatever you can find on the right. Stem carefully on the smooth left face. You dried your shoes, didn't you? Pull up on the delightfully juggy horn and motor up the large crack to the top.

Protection 

Standard rack. Suitable trees for TR anchors at top.
