Probably the best route in the area. Head up the slab to the roof, move right into a corner at the base of the basalt flake. Climb past the flake and up the arete to the anchors.


On a slab uphill and 100 ft left Baby Steps.

Some moves are more technical and holds smaller than what I would consider 5.7, the rating the book suggests. Beginner climbers may have problems with this, but still a fun climb for the area. Also, the anchor does not have chains so you cannot rap back down after climbing the upper faces of Playground... bummer!
