A short fun crack. Would make for a great solo if it weren't for jagged rocks at the bottom. Be confident in your abilities if pitching off solo! The danger element is further heightened by the amount of large loose rocks on the topout. It is possible to straddle the arete on a thankful seat to avoid the death blocks. This would make for a nice short roped crack climb if the top were cleaned off. Walk off East.


Walk behind the bathroom taking the ledge closest to the road. Scramble down the fun slot and look to the left upon exit. This is the obvious hand sized crack.
