This route climbs face next to a crack to a tricky exit onto a ledge. The second pitch is a short, easy face that can be climbed a few different ways and puts you on a nice picturesque summit. The route is fun.

The day of the FA I was bouldering nearby and heard a familiar voice. It was another local, Rick Faulkner.

I hollered to Rick and said, “What are you on?” He hollered back, “Woman Trouble!” (another route at the wall) I hollered, “No, you’re not!” He responded, “Then I guess it’s a first ascent.”

I hiked over and joined them. I went back later and climbed the route to the top of the wall.

The crack is a left facing flake type feature that goes to a ledge.


From the main corner hike LEFT along the wall to the next prominent corner. This route is located just right of the main corner before the wall turns to a north facing aspect. Rappel the route from a nearby tree.


Standard rack. Bring webbing for the rappel. You'll need to extend whatever tree you use to rappel. There is also an obscure scramble between this route and the rest of the routes on the wall.
