This is a great thin line. The crux is down low Passing a rooflet and a small left facing section. You are on your tips here and the feet are small and slick. Continue up and to the left. Some parties rappel from slings around a block and/or horn, and some traverse over to the anchor bolts on top of the Riddler/Leisure Time to rap. An excellent pitch well worth the time to hike there.


Bring the small half of your rack and double it. Slings may be useful.

In your face right off the deck, this is the beautiful THIN crack on the right side of the cliff (there are several beauties over there) and has an intimidating feel given its position at the end of a thin, exposed ledge. Be sure to anchor the belayer, an idea that'll seem obvious when you stand at the start. A stiff route of great quality in a usually quiet and peaceful setting.

Just below the low crux there is rattling hand jam. The rock probably do not fall out of the crack for the long time, but this section ( about one feet) not good for pro
