Start just left of Handle With Care (5.6) underneath a small seam that leads to a right facing overhung flake. Keep trucking past the overhung flake and the climbing mellows. Top out onto the first ledge and then continue up the next fun easy section of climbing to tope out or walk off.

The overhanging right facing flake is the business, so study it well before you venture into tricky gear territory. Otherwise pretty mellow climbing if you can keep it together mentally. Protects well before and after the flake.

A great top rope for introductory climbers but a natural anchor will be necessary.


Right of 'Four Play'.

Left of 'Handle with Care'.


North Carolina Trad Rack. Natural anchor.
