Description 

Climb a ramp up and right to the right side of an overhang (follow the fixed pins, still there as of 2007), then move right up the face using the path of least resistance to a large ledge and tree. Descend right, via the Uberfall Descent.

The face is often sandy and not nearly as good as it looks.

Location 

Fifty feet right of Rhododendron, at a pool known as the frog pond. Just left of an obvious slabby face with a seam diagonaling right.

Protection 

Fixed pins (?) + standard Gunks rack

Good route to mess around on while you wait for Horseman to open up. Short. Small holds. High feet. Nothing to write home about.

Easy to back up the pins with 0 and 00 Mastercams if you want. Nice warm up, just wish it was longer!
