Description 

Worthwhile climbing.

Up the face, then up the right-facing inside corner above, with a tricky exit over the top.

warning: The rock on and around this route has not been climbed much yet, and much of the rock is still breakable and loose -- so the belayer and other people should stand far away from underneath the climber - (and if possible, behind a large tree).

. . . (Lots of vegetation on this rock as of 2016. Be prepared when climbing to navigate around protruding trees and branches, and dealing with holds slippery with grass, lichen, moss, dirt).

Location 

Below a right-facing inside corner at the top of the face which is about eight feet left in from the right end of the top. Start on face about five feet left in from large blocky right-facing corner which is left from the right arete and a large right-facing inside corner / gully at the right end of the Fairy Tales slab.

Protection 

Protection for Trad leading is unknown and likely inadequate.

For ideas to set up Top-Rope, see the Description of this Fairy Tales sector.

The top crux sequence is perhaps easier than 5.8 if first succeen in finding the best holds.
