A contrived little traverse to get the blood flowing. The shortest little wall at the crag, and the first one you come to.

This micro-route is redeemed by the outstanding quality of the holds, which are universally well-shaped, open handed, and high-friction. 5 or 6 moves and gently overhung.


Start sitting down and left on the little 6-8 foot face that greets you as you depart the white trail and head towards the wall. Two very generous low jugs to pull on; then traverse right, avoiding the lip (Contrivance!). Pull around the right corner and mantle up. Fun!


Nothing. Maybe a pad, maybe.

I did like 2 or 3 other problems on this little wall for warming up. The right arete (jugs), a line to the left of that (arete off) and another short line in the middle of the face. You are right though, the quality of the holds makes up for the lack of vertical.

Agreed. I figured this'd be the one worth posting since it had the most interesting movement and the most moves, but there are other little problems to be done.
