  • Description 

    This is a funky face with a hollow pillar that doesn't protect well at all on lead. A TR is better. You can ascend up the groove and then either right or left of the pillar. Note, you should be careful not to apply much force outward on the pillar. It flexes at least an inch. A star is probably generous.

    I lead this last night with Seth Musulin and would have called the route 5.8 at the most and R/X (no option on the pulldown tab for R/X). It was chossy but the holds were big enough that it wasn't that big of a deal other than the death pillar 25ft up (first and only place you get gear). Unfortunately 6 other people were below so I did not cut the pillar loose so beware. I'd be careful toproping this line as well as there are a TON of loose rocks above, especially if you use the tree anchor. Also, the route is only 30ft tall, but the tree is back another 20+feet from the top, so the height in the description is technically accurate, but don't expect that amount of climbing. Seth and I also added two new routes to the left side of the crag - a 5.8 crack and a 5.10b R face thing.
