Climb the obvious beautiful thick flake. The crux is right off the ground, working right through the 4" placement and up and right over the overlap. After that the rest of the route is at most 5.8+, as the higher right-trending crack has plenty of great feet.


The obvious crack splitting a clean face on the island across from Roadside Rock aka Highway rock.


1 4" cam for the low crux, 2 3" cams higher up are helpful. Otherwise a few varied 0.5-2" cams. Anchor is two fairly old bolts and quite a bit of tat, could use a cleanup (as of August 2014).
