Do yourself a favor, and skip this one.

Still here? Ok. Start in the corner on the left end of the ledge. 4th-class climbing past jagged, sometimes chossy rock leads to a roof. Traverse right under the roof and to the top.


Not in the Cave at all. Starts on the same ledge as Pump, far right from the Solstice Cave. A little bit left of the waterfall before you reach Stephen King Library.

To descend, rappel from a dead tree and hope your rope doesn't get stuck. Or, you can bushwhack through briar in an attempt to walk off. Have fun.


light rack, mostly hands and larger

I tried this route because the guidebook said the route has it's own anchor, but if it does I wasn't able to find it. It's possible that I didn't go high enough but with no good trees to rap off of I wasn't going to keep climbing higher. Ended up having to down climb, real bummer as there's plenty of pro available. Would definitely avoid this one in the future.

Wide with plenty of gear options, and sharp stone. The guide book is partially correct in that it does have fixed gear anchors (old camalot and a nut with webbing) just to the left of the main crack up on the ledge below the roof. I will never climb it again, but for those that may bring webbing for the anchors.
