Description 

Never climbed this one; included it for completeness sake. The route itself is VERY short, there doesn't appear to be much gear, and building an anchor on top is very difficult without long pieces of static line/webbing.

Location 

Starts on top of a large ledge, 30 feet right of Easy Crack. Start on left side of ledge; follow seam to left of small roof and up to top. Easy walkoff.

Protection 

Unknown gear. VERY long static line needed for anchor, to reach allowable trees.

We set these up as TR for kids.

To set up a TR, you need a long static rope to reach back to the big dead stump. Along the cracks on top are two or three spots where you can fit an alien and I think a nut or two. Use long webbing and the static to create your TR anchor- it's not easy nor pretty.

Carrot Face is harder than 5.3. Pebble fingers may be harder than 5.7. Quick 8 might be 5.8. They're ok, unmemorable really; the only reason we set them up is they are short and because it takes so much static rope and webbing to set up, there usually aren't people on them.

To start these climbs, you have to scramble up onto a ledge. Then step over a crevice to reach the wall. It may be difficult for smaller kids to reach the start, they might have to swing across and get a boost.

This is the only route in that area that actually starts on the ground. Look for a rock "crevasse" and find the vertical crack in the back of this recess. Follow it past two pine trees, then over the triangular 'hang pictured in the guidebook. Nowhere near 5.8 IMO (much easier)
