Description 

This is route #20 in the on-line guide.
Start up a crack system, through some blocky stuff, and enter a nice stemming dihedral with stable stances; the flaring cracks running up the back provide great holds and protection opportunities. An excellent beginner trad lead or TR for total greenhorns.


Location 

The second dihedral in from the far left (west) end of the south cliff.


Protection 

Great stances on lead, sew it up with medium cams & hexes.

Popular to top-rope; a 2-bolt anchor, reachable from the top, was recently re-installed (please don't sling the tree anymore). There's also abundant opportunities for a gear anchor on top if you like.
