This is a short crack line up the slab. It is a good route for the beginner trad climber.

Climb the crack with a pine tree near the top. Top out and walk left to an anchor.

Eds. The length of the route is listed as longer, since using a the 2 anchor bolts up and left and a 100' rope will not allow you to belay your second from the ground. It was originally listed as a 30' route.


It is on the Short Slab Wall left of the steep section.


Standard rack.

This is a fun, easy route. I used a #4 Camalot but did not use a #3. Carrying up to a #2 would be adequate.

Fun route, with plenty of good gear options. Great beginner lead. I'd encourage setting up a belay at the tree if wanting to set up a toprope, unless you want to extend the 2 bolt rap anchor about 20 ft over the edge to prevent bad rope drag with the anchor being about 20 left of the tree on route. Few if no gear options immediately on the topout ledge. Use the bolted rap station. Be careful not to knock the blocks down near the edge, there's a few head-sized ones next to the bush on the ledge.
