This route will hopefully clean up as it sees more traffic.
Climb the newly excavated fist crack to a ledge below an arete. Climb the exciting arete over nice edges and horizontals to a small roof about 10 feet from the top. Take the crack and exit out and right, using the tree as gear or belay.


15' right of Weedwack Crack, near a tree. Locate the obvious, nice fist crack that needs a power wash. When you top this out to the tree filled ledge, you will be directly under 'Ice Cakes, 5.9+' and this, or Weedwack crack, could be a first pitch to it.


Up to 4", Use a tree on the ledge as an anchor, rap or walk off right or keep climbing on Ice Cakes
