Description 

Pitch 1: climb 120 feet of lower fifth class to the base of the dihedral.

Pitch 2: the sustained 5.7 crux is as you move out of the chimney, large #9 and #10 hexes are needed, 100 feet.

Pitch 3: climb 5.4 to the top. It is short.

Location 

This is on the largest rock in the valley. The start is right in the center.

Protection 

Bring one each of large #9-10 hexes. You can rap off the back 60 feet or rappel the route.

CONDITION REPORT 
I live in the Blue Mountain Estates as do a number of climbers actually, and if this is one of the crags in the valley, it is on private land for sure. I think the Bisque family owns most of the interesting looking crags, and they haven't been all that amenable to climbing as far as I know. Before heading up onto one of those formations, I'd make sure you know exactly whose land you accessing & get their explicit approval. JeffCo has all of the property ownership records on-line.
