This route starts on small ledges and cracks.the first moves are tricky,as they require some time to work out.continue up to niche,then follow crack to the top.


Top rope can be set fairly easy,a piece of 25 perlon,or webbing with 1#.75-1#2-1#3 for lead has not been determinded yet.

Start next to the 5.6 on the left, and traverse in. Getting off the ground and getting out of the niche are the cruxes.
