BETA PHOTO: Steeper than it looks.


This is an excellent, short overhang. Start by following a left-leaning crack for 2 bolts to the base of the overhang. Continue out the short, steep wall on underclings, sidepulls, and slopers. A final pumpy mantel brings you to the chains.


This is about 5-10 minutes from the car walking upstream. It is visible from the road but hard to pick out at first.


5 bolts + 2-bolt chain anchor.
