Natasha Hodges on a cool, November afternoon.

Description 

A really, really fun line. A thin start (shared with the route to the left). After two bolts traverse right, following a crack using underclingery. After a couple of bolts, head up into a trough that turns into a crack. Jamming for the last few bolts if you want it, but not required.

Location 

Starts from a ledge on the left side of the trail (when heading deeper into the crag) that sits above a 10 foot vertical face. Access to the ledge is via easy scrambling at the left side. Don't confuse this ledge with the much wider and higher ledge further along the trail.

The second-from-the-left route of four lines that start from the ledge.

Protection 

Ten bolts to anchors.
