  • Description 

    Difficult to protect on lead, but a good beginner toprope. Follow thin cracks up the face, then left to the arete, and then back right to the face.


    Around the arete to the right of the A cracks. An obvious slab broken up with cracks.


    Mostly small gear. Easy to eyeball from the ground as far as sizes go.

    A slightly tricky 5.6, sometimes requires more thought than you would expect looking at it from the bottom.

    Though the trickiest move(s) might be the first couple off the ground.

    Protection is just fine for the first 2/3, then gets a little scarce as you near the top. Wander left to the edge 3/4 up to a good stance for the last decent placement.
