A physical route up stems, wide cracks, & a squeeze chimney. A more accurate rating might be 5.9+++.
Start by stemming up a wide crack in a right-facing corner. Continue up past a weird squeeze slot thing to fun, steep moves past horizontals to the anchor up & right.
Located way downstream on the East side in the area known as The Beach. Starts in a right-facing corner, just right of the 3 aretes. Watch out for poison ivy.
Cams to at least a #4 camalot, larger nuts, & slings. Fixed anchor. An extra #2 &/or #3 camalot may prove helpful.

This route seemed 5.10 to me, but then again I fell in the off width... it was a slow, cheese grater fall about 5 ft. I still have a scar on my shoulder. But, that aside (that was a silly mistake), it's just overall consistent, with an exciting end too. I think it is a cool climb.
