Tricky climbing on enjoyable rock of various features. A shame it's so short. Called "Man Hands" because the route varies dramatically depending on finger size at the top of the route. For some women, the route is 5.10. For myself, however, and anyone else with man hands, it's tougher because we're unable to cram our digits into the small crack at the top.
Last route in the left end of the wall. Left of Captain Morgan

One of the more difficult routes on the left. You will better understand the route name when you come to the last moves. High left foot on a sweet ledge, not much for the right foot at all. There is a solid hold on a slick black rock, that appears to be almost coming off the wall, so let your belay know about it before you put your weight on it. With both hands on this you have 1 option, unless you don't have man hands, there is a tiny crack and also a 1 finger pocket that will help you get up to this classic 3 finger pocket under the chains. I had to do a dyno for this pocket. Once you get your right hand in this pocket you can reach above the chains to the right for some really easy left hand holds, again this isn't climbed much so those holds have a good amount of dirt/vegetation on them.

The slick black rock came off the wall and now leave a small lip for your right hand. Don't know if changes the grade too much, just the sequence.
