Description 

Anice climb on good rock. Cleaned on lead, what a horror that must have been. This is good climb to start with on this crag.
P1 Up a V groove and cracks on the face to trees. 5.8 75'
P2 Crack on the left becomes a corner to a small ledge( I belayed here)5.9+ 75'
P2-3 A short 5.10 corner leads to the top 40'

Location 

Right of center there is a short V groove heading up to a tree ledge. Rap 2x to get down ( 2 rope but a single 70 MIGHT make it)

Protection 

Good gear for the most part. I would bring a wire brush and standard rack to 3" or so. No fixed gear

Sounds interesting, but "cleaned on the lead" translates to "completely lichen covered," no?

I'mguessing it's pretty bad now, the f/a was '84 and i only know of a few ascents. It's a good route, well worth the hike in.
Also some recent activity on this cliff in the 11+ range
