Do not park in the residential neighborhood! Park in the designated lot MORE INFO >>>


Another great hand crack.

Climb up a block to gain a ledge which rises from right to left. At the left side of the ledge is a hand crack that goes up and slightly left. Follow this to the top. The crux may be getting in the crack itself.

Belay off a tree at the top. It is probably easier to belay a second up than it is to set up a sling-shot top-rope. Walk off left down the gully.


Left of the main wall. There are other routes on this part of the cliff, but they were overgrown when I was there.


Gear to 2 inches (though there is one placement that could take a 3 inch piece if you've got it).

There are chains at the top. No need to belay off tree!

Splendid jamming. I'd give it four stars if the crack started on the ground.
