Jam up the fist crack in a right facing corner. Gain a small ledge with a good undercling as the crack narrows to hands and jogs right. Jam up and right to a heinous dirt ledge (crux). Follow a ramp up and left past a pulverized oak tree while holding your breath. Scramble up a short chimney to a tree belay. Would be a decent route if cleaned up.


Obvious fist crack about 10' right of Caveman Cam.

Cleaned up, this would be recommended route. Given its remote location, climbers should expect unkempt conditions. The dead tree residue does detract, but that will wash away with time. One might be able to do the climb without risking lung & limb then.
