Description 

The route follows up to the right of the modest tree in the center of the wall. Mostly slab climbing with an interesting initial pull onto the rock. Be weary of choss as the rock has never been climbed before and many small pieces were coming off.

Location 

Located on the north side of the large formation on the southern end of the beach.

Protection 

No bolts, top rope off of the big tree at the top of the face with a directional off a second smaller tree to the right.
