Start up at the base of the black and white dihedral. Head up and then take a hand rail ~15 up to the left. After the rail, go straight up to chain anchors (installed 4/21/12).


This is North of the Cave Route by a few hundred feet. Start at the large black and white dihedral.


Trad rack, Good nut placements and #1 cams and smaller.

Fun route, but I took my first lead fall in years when a hold broke under my weight.

Watch out for the little brown bat after you cross left over the face at the beginning of the route.
