Description 

This route is the obvious crack in the middle of the face with a tree growing at the top. Climb the dihedral using pockets and stemming for 15' to a large ledge. Lieback up the crack system until the face becomes peppered with pockets and edges.

This is a very fun climb, but only gets two stars because there are no three star routes at Falling Rock. This is a sentimental favorite of mine because it was my first climb ever.

Protection 

This would be a scary lead because of the flaring cracks and slick limestone. Easy to toprope from the tree.

Not a scary lead. Good fun climbing with lots of places for gear. Bring some bigger stuff.

This is a great climb for everyone. I could see how it would be scary on lead but if you look for places for gear its not too scary.

Its an OK climb. Some of the ledges and holds are a bit sandy.

fun lead, but one should feel good at the grade as the gear isn't too awe inspiring
