Description 

Crux is pulling onto top part from the horizontal ledge. The climb is an excellent top rope for folks not yet ready to lead it. One of my favorites because of the sustained top part. Much easier than Lady Fingers at the same rating.


Location 

This route is at the far end of the cliff band near the fire tower. If you are at the base its directly right of Box Lunch.


Protection 

Small to medium gear. Make sure to build a great anchor before you launch onto the final top 1/3. The sidepull is tough to get up and established and you have to be ready to finish after that. If you do toprope please pad the tree or use the crack, it takes small cams/nuts.
