Description 

Climb the hand crack in the corner to the right of the pipe. The first 25 feet are a nice crack with no face holds. From here I went through the arch and finished by sitting on top of the arch, but I may have used the pipe to ascend part of that section.

My belayer belayed from the ledge with the tree at the base of the crack. I think it's safer that way.

The guide book says 70ft, but its 35ft tops.

The climbing isn't bad, but it's short. The little bit of added adventure/ not straight forward cragging made it more fun for me.

Location 

When you're about to the main wall, take the small trail that veers left. It goes up the hill, down the other side of the wall, and through a little bit of vegetation.

Protection 

what I used (from what I remember):

#.5 to #1 BD cams. I think a double of the #1. 1 nut behind the arch.
