Description 

This steep line begins directly across the road from the pullout. It goes at 10-, unless you're sensitive to poison ivy; then it earns a solid 5.12+. While there is a distinct crux about 1/3 of the way up, the infamous gate move (BETA ALERT: use your buddy's stick clip to brush aside the overhanging ivy; return to him/her immediately), the route stays at you through the upper section. There are at least two demanding, inobvious sequences waiting above the crux.

Not recommended in rainy conditions.

Protection 

long pants, calamine lotion
