Worth climbing. A curving hand crack to the right of a perched boulder at the base of the cliff.


This route is pretty far down the cliff, keep walking right until you see the striking curving crack.


Hands and smaller cams will do the trick.

For anchor placement there is a boulder about 10' from the lip, that takes small cams in it's pockets and 1 hands sized cam for a single larger pocket. 3 peace anchor possible if you are creative.
