A much more fun climb when led. Me on lead.

Description 

Follow the corner/crack past a small overhang to the top. The highly-featured rock in and around the crack make this route a little different from your run-of-the-mill crack climb.

Location 

Toward the right end of the wall. Look for an obvious crack that starts out in a wide and weird corner down low, and then continues as a hand crack to the top.

Protection 

standard rack, bolted anchors at top

Fun lead, but the beginning is not very well protected. Start the corner/cave to get to the first piece.

Fun route with the option to really get in some crack climbing here and there! Good warm up for the day!!
