The crag classic, great crack and face climbing up a cool feature. 3 stars for the area.

P1. Climb cracks up a dihedral to a roof, which is passed on the right. Follow this corner up and step left to a belay ledge with a bolted anchor. 5.9+.

P2. Climb behind the block at the belay and up the corner, slightly dirty, to the big ledge and a tree anchor. 5.8.

P3. Continue to top via 5.8 corner directly above tree or 5.9+ crack to the right. Not recommended due to loose rock and no fixed anchor to rap.


Cams and stoppers including a couple #3 and a #4. Bolted anchor at P1 belay and slung tree at P2 belay. Place solid gear as much of the rock is suspect.


Route starts on the right side of the crag. Start on broken terrain below and right of the obvious dihedral. Best to end at the top of P2 and rap off the tree with one double rope rap or a single rope rap to the P1 anchors then another to the ground.
