Description 

Really fun climb and super accessible. good tree for anchor and easy rappel down. Use a directional to avoid getting rope stuck in top crack, which is super annoying when jamming. climb to the right "power surge is also an option from this anchor spot

Location 

West side of Toothpick Wall. Probably most obvious / well worn location on this wall. Anchor is big tree directly behind top out location. Easy repel down or use cave access to west side of wall. Belay from ground in relatively flat location. beginning of the climb is really more of a scramble up to the true start point about 10' off the ground at ledge

Protection 

book says pro to 3" but its a better TR climb

This one very rarely gets led. Fun climb though. Wish the jamming lasted longer.
