Description 

This route is not that good, but I don't think it deserves a bomb. I used it as a warm-up, and climbing it really has no other purpose. There is a #4 Camalot-sized crack about halfway up. Above this crack you move to the right to go up the obvious crack. The crux is steep, but there are good undercling holds here. Hubbel gave the climb a 5.7 rating in his guides, but in the Haas guide, it gets a 5.6 rating, and I agree with it. The crack is a bit vegetated near the top, and the rock is a little crumbly.

Location 

This crack is on the left side of the rock and to the right of a tree midway up. It is the only thing that looks climbable left of the Hall's Balls crack. The first moves start right below a big flake. You walk off to climber's left.

Protection 

Standard rack up to a #4 Camalot. There is a tree to anchor to at the top.

I remember this one being awful. The only thing I really remember was grovelling up a kitty litter off fists crack for about 10 feet.
