Climbing on route


Start at the pine tree below a small roof. Trad climbing to the right side of small roof then up a set of small cracks 5.6 past a small pine tree to a ledge. Continue to the left up easy climbing to a 2 bolt anchor below a small roof and below the arete.
Climb to bolt on arete, clip bolt and ascend arete, protecting arete with small cam (a little spicy) At the top of the arete is a 2 bolt anchor ( short pitch) From here head to the top with sparse gear. Belay behind a large rock or make a gear anchor. Walk off to the North fourth with some fifth class downclimbing.
The crux is the second pitch. Look for bolt on the arete.


When you come up to the crag from the river approach the climb starts where you can go to the climbs on the river or up the hill to the other climbs. Look for a pine tree at the start.


Trad gear on pitch 1, 1 bolt with 2 bolted anchors on pitch 2. Pitch three belay behind big rock. Walk off, some tricky down climbing at times.
