Description 

'Simply put, This is among the best routes in the state for its grade. It's sustained 5.10 face climbing for the entirety of its 100 foot length.
Although often wet in the spring, it dries by late summer. When standing on top of the crag above the climb "In the Valley" look to the east, and find the flat face that can be followed down to the bottom of the cliff. The route is between the gully on the right and the broken edge of the cliff on the left.'
Thanks to Bob Bickford for the description above. The pictures, too, will be invaluable in finding the route.


Location

Simply put, This is among the best routes in the state for it's grade. It's sustained 5.10 face climbing for the entirety of it's 100 foot length. Often wet in the spring but will dry out by late summer. When standing on top of the crag above the climb " In the Valley" look to the east and find the flat face that can be followed down to the bottom of the cliff. The route is between the gully on the right and the broken edge of the cliff on the left. Like all climbs at section 13, photography is difficult. I have also submitted 3 photos that will hopefully identify the top. This climb is well worth doing and deserves at least 3 stars.
