Start to left of crack, join the crack and up it (or to its right) to the top.

Variation: Direct start in crack up overhang (5.7+)

. . . (Lots of vegetation on this rock as of 2014. Be prepared when climbing to navigate around protruding trees and branches, and dealing with holds slippery with grass, lichen, moss, dirt).


Wide crack with large chockstone midway up, and overhang at bottom. About ten feet right of Hi E crack and ten feet left of tree-growing crack.


Top-Rope likely requires very long static line to reach big rock (no trees anywhere top of wall, and not much trad gear possibilities near top of route).

Protection for trad Leading is unknown.

Thoughtful interesting moves the whole way. Completely different from indoor climbing. If only this route were longer.
