BETA PHOTO: crab eyes approached from the east
The first 15 feet or so is the business on this route. Sprint up the 5.9 section and the climbing backs off to easy 5.6 after that. A fun route and good warm up.
This route is on the left hand side of the East face. To the left of the fire pit.
Trad, no anchors.

protecting the bottom part of this route is hard as all get up. It's an inward flaring offwidth crack that is too big for a #4 camalot. You can get a #4 on the outside edge but be sure to extend it to make sure it doesn't walk inwards or you'll find yourself in an awkward situation.
