Description 

This is the third to last route on the west-most section of the crag. Scramble some 4th class choss for about 20 feet to reach the beginning of the route which starts at a steep, slightly left-angling finger-size dihedral. Power the dihedral and then follow the slab to a small tree. As the route steepens, the crack thins but still accepts gear (green Alien mostly). The funnest part of the route is the first and last 10'. This route is a plausible first trad lead for beginning trad climbers, just make sure you place two pieces nice and high at the bottom to avoid decking.

The first 20' has some loose rock on it so be careful. If belaying on top rope, don't stand under the climber to avoid getting hit.

Protection 

Trad - Single rack to #.75 Camalot. Two green aliens or #1 Master Cams are useful for the top.
