Getting the good block.


Starting in the back of the cave on the slightly overhanging wall with your left hand on a good hold on the arete and your right on an obvious slopey hold, pull on and trend rightward encountering fun and sometimes tricky moves. Once your reach the other arete you can drop off on juggy holds in a seam. This is always shadey and has a very good landing.


At the base of the Misery wall on the uphill side of the pillar in the cave.


A pad or 2.. or none.

I was wondering when somebody was going to put this up. Looks pretty cool!

I looked at it for awhile when I was guiding in the area and finally went to try it. The moves are really fun and the landing is so good that you could do it without a pad.
