BETA PHOTO: Little Murders (5.3)

Description 

This route climb the huge, right-facing corner system at the far end of the crag and is the last major feature on the wall before it peters out into the hillside. Lieback up the corner and at the top either finish straight up or undercling out right via a large, somewhat dubious flake (5.5). Easy descent by walking right from the top and downclimbing an easy flake/ramp system below a large pine tree.


Protection 

standard rack to 3"

Fun & easy climbing. The gear looking flake adds some excitement

Fairly easy, but not trivial. The flake/chimney section may be a little awkward for a novice trad leaders, but there is plenty of protection opportunity through the whole pitch.
