Description 

Tight shoes may help on this one! Do a boulder problem start, like many on this rock, and weave your way up the face using edges, scoops and a couple of horizontal cracks.

Location 

Located between Chockstone Chimney and Double Crack.

Protection 

Very little if leading, you might be able to wiggle in some gear (1-1.5") in a horizontal near the top but most will solo or top-rope this route.

5.7? Maybe I missed something, or several somethings. Seemed harder.

rating: 5.8- 5b 16 VI- 14 VS 4c R

Decent training toprope climb; a bit stiff for the 5.7, so I'd call it a 5.8-. Indian Cove rock is grainy and a little on the crumbly side, so I suspact that the original rating has changed a bit....
