Left most climb in the glade area and the first climb set for this area. Done ground up with no idea what the rock quality would be. This route turns out to have the best rock of the area. Start at a blocky crack immediately left of a wide crack (with a tree half way up). Follow a disconnected crack system that veers left and then back right over a slight bulge near the top. Anchors and standard biners at top. Recommend doubles to 1 inch with potential for stopper placement in some of the cracks.

Doubles to 1 inch.

An excellent trad pitch with solid rock and fun climbing.

Getting back on this climb after such a long time since setting it was a delight -- the rock quality is the best for Glade Wall and almost as good as Double Fault, and the climbing is indeed fun. A good escape!
