Description 

Pitch 1 (5.8 40m) - Climb the groove and a short slab to a nice ledge. Watch out for loose rock when setting up an anchor.

Pitch 2 (5.7 35m) - Traverse right and climb an overhang on good holds. One can either climb up sooner (harder) or further right (easier). Do not follow the tempting crack, but rather cross the slab left around the arete and climb easy finger cracks to the "Eagle's Nest".

Pitch 3 (25m) - A delicate step right around the corner leads to easy cracks to the top. Alternately go straight through the lip above the belay (10c?).

Location 

Behind a tree and large boulder at the right side of the cliff

Protection 

Standard rack
