Description 

This interesting set of cracks finally received a substantial cleaning, and is now a worthy adventure. Start from the top of two obvious blocks that are located above a pine tree. Caution is advised during the first 30 feet of the route as some of the features are a bit hollow and/or fractured, and require thoughtful protection placements to protect in the solidest rock. The crux is a short right-facing corner with a fingercrack just before the actual gully begins. The original finish followed the obvious recess to the top of the crag and belayed from a tree. Walk off to the left and back down to the base.

Protection

In early April I took a fall on this climb and fractured my skull. I just happened to swing in just the right way that I swung into the "gully" and hit my head against the wall. The lesson: wear a helmet on this climb.
