BETA PHOTO: this is where its at...


I wasn't sure at first whether to include this here as it might not be good enough or independent enough of a route. I then decided that the point of this site is to tell folks what is out there and let them decide what to do with it.

So this line exists, and its much different than the routes on either side of it even if it shares a little climbing with them. The crux is right off the ground. A deceptively challenging bulge with a thin hand crack leads to a stance with sharp holds. Move up and right to share a couple moves with Birch Corner and up to a ledge. You could finish to the top on Birch Corner but i enjoyed moving left in to the chimney on Triple Fisting and up to the 2 bolt anchor.

So there are a couple loose rocks and a little lichen but i thought it was fun. Do with it as you wish, which is likely to be nothing :)
