Description 

A fun easy route on the far right, good for beginner leaders or for an easy relaxing outing.

P1. Start up the pegmatite and veer left, following a left facing corner (slanting left). Then up the head wall (crux) and to a pine tree. To keep the grade low and more consistent on the route, you can circumvent the crux by going left for a move or two. Or go straight up (and a grade or two harder) for more interesting moves. 5.4 100'

P2. Go straight up (veering slightly right) to a small pine tree, through two fun decent size overlaps. 5.3 170'

P3. Go left and up over easy slab and finish up a clean beautiful low angle arete to a tree. 5.2 180'

From here you can scramble to the top of the cliff and take the Ledge Tr back out.

Location 

Far right. From Hank Chinos, go right and steeply up for ~75'.

Protection 

Gear is good throughout the route.
