BETA PHOTO: Start on the grassy ledge, work up the thin crack ...


Somewhat sustained 5.8 with a crux in the middle. This route follows a thin flaring crack. The start is dirty but don't let that put you off. A bulge about half way up is your crux, go straight up and it's 5.8+, move over left and it's 5.8-. You finish with a small easy roof on positive holds.


Found on the left side of the wall, this route starts on a grassy ledge with some ferns. See the route picture for specifics.


Trees at the top for anchors for now. The route is lead-able, PG13 because of the run-out start. The final roof protects well with a cam placed in the horizontal just before. Standard rack, with some smaller cams through the middle.
