Description 

This is a very pleasant crack climb with a nice variety of finger and hand jams from top to bottom. It merges with the top of Tom's Route. The original grade from 1977 was 5.1! It has been adjusted to reflect current grades. We are such weenies today.

Location 

Start is just right of Tom's Route. Traverse right across a ledge about 10 feet and then head up the discontinuous vertical cracks.

Protection 

Stand rack to 3". Tree anchor.
