Route D: Hard-ish moves on bad rock up just right of Route C. The first bolt is sorta hard to clip, but you can boulder past it and clip after you are above it on good solid holds. Continue up the face past 6 bolts to Mussy Hooks.


The broken and dark features just right of the crack that is route C

For the starting moves only I give this route 5.9PG. Pretty hard to clip the first bolt without climbing above it on some not-so-solid footing. Even with the bolt placement this is probably the third best route on the crag. YMMV.
