  • Description 

    This is an obvious, off-vertical corner with ledges, a (tiny) roof, and many places to put hands & feet.

    Climb straight up the center of the corner. Some variations right and left are possible but not necessary.

    The crux of this one might be not kicking pebbles and small rocks onto your belayer.

    Location 

    This is on the aqueduct trail, if you get to the askew manhole cover (the 2nd one on the trail), you've gone about 50 feet too far.

    This one is hard to miss & has a great view of Country Club Crack & Athlete's Feat on Castle Rock....

    To get down: walk off, up then to climber's right (east) for maybe a hundred yards, then down (a faint trail may exist?) back to the aqueduct trail.

    Protection 

    Gear to 3", but there is a spot for a BD #4. There are no anchors at the top & the walk-off is easy after a short scramble up.
