Description 

Start off a boulder right of Arachnids and below the left of two parallel cracks which split the formation from above.

Climb easy face up and left, going where the holds are larger and more secure, to meet a horizontal crack (3" cam here) which is followed right as it turns into a off-vertical hand crack. Belay/rap from coldshuts between the two cracks.

Fun climbing on good rock with a nice mix of face and crack climbing make this a fun outing for beginners. One star out of five.

Protection 

pro to 3", bolted anchor/rap
