BETA PHOTO: Start of Short and Simple

Description 

From the carriage road, scramble up to the arete. Climb the arete, then step right and pull the overhang at a diagonal right-rising crack, then up to a ledge. Zig right, up one short face, then traverse back left and top-out.

Not much to build an anchor from (no cracks or boulders and mostly protected pitch pines) save a short oak tree.

Easy walk-off to the left.

Location 

This is the second climb you encounter when walking from the West Trapps lot after the Colorful's Boulder on your right. Round the turn with the sandy hill on your left and it starts at the end of the first cliff you encounter on the left.

Protection 

Standard Gunks rack.
