There's plenty of good trees for anchoring and a couple of nice little finger/hand cracks. I rated it 5.7, but with the cracks, it might be closer to 5.8, but generally it's not difficult. Not too many cracks to work in this area so it's a fun little spot.


Just passed the EP17 trail marker, immediately before you enter the bamboo forest, upriver from the Overlook Deck, turn right onto a subtle trail. Look for the formation uphill right off the trail, easier to see in the winter. Little bit of scrambling will get you to the formation, easily identifiable by the teetering stack of blocks looming over you as you approach. Scramble and claw your way around the left of the formation to get on top of it for top-rope access.


Top rope is the most practical way to go, but you could lead it with some cams. There are no bolts or hangers.
