Tall....airy....scenic. The elevation of the ginsu feature (~12 foot serrated-edged flake/column) corresponds to a fractured and weakly-cemented sandstone layer that runs through the cliff at this height.....so climb discretely here

Lowering anchors added to Ginsu and to Full Moon.

One of the crag's nicer climbs at this grade

Upper 30-35 feet are trad - either the easily identified finger/handcrack......or the spicier pockets and slopers version to its left (anchors are over this finish but reachable by either).

Light to medium rack: small to med wires, cams 1/2-inch to 2 1/2-inch
