Description 

This route was done after a letter was found that was left by a 2nd party of climbers who also discovered this crag. The thought of keeping this crag a secret was not meant to be.
This route has a bit of a spicy, yet easy, start. Be careful how you pull on those chockstones.

Location 

#12 on 03-07-2012 topo.

Protection 

Cams and nuts. Hexes also could work in some placements. A girth-hitched sling also works higher up. Down low, the leader can either place some very small nuts in the crack or go for the small cam placement in the first chockstone. Rap anchors with biners.

There is a crow/raven nest near the top of this climb. I got a bit spooked by the bird but she left me alone.

Mentioned earlier but bears repeating, there is lots of loose rock on this one. Should be a very good route after some more cleaning, but be very aware what you're yanking on. I pulled two rocks right off the wall when I climbed it.
