. (also known as "Channel")
The historic "official" difficulty grade in the old West Point guide was 5.10-
The historic route description was:
"Climb 20 feet of easy rock to sloping overhang. Climb through the overhang by way of the six inch right facing corner and a drill strike 8” to the right of corner. Climb through multiple overhangs to rap/belay station located 3/4 up the cliff ...
V1: Climb out to the left of the first overhang about 5 feet."

Could set up Top-Rope by making a short rappel from above the top of the cliff down to the anchor bolts.

RRT# 182
. (between "Good Choss" and "Triple Banger Overhanger")

The historic Start dectription was:
"At right hand end of 6’ x 30’ 120 degree overhang."


Bolts -- years ago there were 11 bolts, but I have not checked to see if this count is still accurate.

Interesting varied crux sequence, sustained at the difficulty grade.
