At the start, work up and left onto a sloped ledge underneath a steep left facing corner.

Second pitch ascends this corner to a flake at its top, then work around the flake into another corner to the top. Steep laybacking and then a wild undercling. The rock under the flake is wet in the winter/spring making it all the more interesting.


Park and the lower Cascade Falls parking lot on Hwy. 140 and walk across the bridge heading into the woods and up. A steep slope encounters the rock wall, walk around the base of the wall untill you find the obvious hard OW crack for The Gerbil Launcher. Start is to the left of this in another corner.


Take a good set of pro to 4".
