An interesting crux move that optionally involves a hand stack, but otherwise not very interesting. After a bit of an initial move involving a bush, get some gear in and hike the low angle trough. Swing right around the first ceiling and then climb the crux second ceiling which is trickier than it looks.


Just right of Iced Tea at the very right end of the ledge is a crack system paralleling Iced Tea that leads up a low angle trough to a ceiling.

To descend either rap from the Iced Tea anchors or very easily scramble down the gully on the right.


Single set of cams to new #4/old #3.5 gray Camalot. There are no anchors at the top, so either traverse left to the Iced Tea anchors or traverse right to the top of a gully.
