Lookout crack, here comes torie!


Climb thin but good fingers with slippery feet till you get to lower angle easy scrambling to the top....
I tend to find that i want to protect in the good hand holds so you need to plan ahead so you don't screw yourself....

The climbing is fun on good rock but a bit short obviously. Definitely worthwhile as a finish to one of the routes below you....

used to love this little crack at the end of the day. A .05 is really helpful at mid height and lets you breath a bit deeper after plugging in your #00 and #3/4 nut.

I think this could be lower then a 5.9 to be honest. this was one of my first climbs and had no problem with it.
