This short but fun route requires a bit of crack climbing technique. The crack off the ground is offwidth as it's too big for fingers and too small for normal size hands. A couple of strenuous layback moves get you to a stance with a bomber hand jam that gets you up and over to easier ground. Easier lower angle climbing gets you to the top.


Small to medium gear easily protect this crack climb. There is a tree growing in the gully above whose branches can be used as anchors.

Crux is getting off the ground. Once over the lip you can basically walk.

Super short route but good as a first trad lead if you can do crack. Good opportunity to practice gear placements, especially over the lip once you're not really climbing anymore.
Belayer may want to anchor in with a couple cams and long runner since it is on a pretty steep slab that goes down to the water. It's nice to be able to lean back and give the climber more attention.
