This is the [third] leftmost route on the cliff, 20' left of "Little Green Apples". The trail along the base scrambles up onto the rim about 100 yards north of here. Face climb to a blocky dihedral leading to a split block on the rim.


Standard rack, 1/2" - 3". [There initially were] no fixed anchors. [Now there are 2 anchor bolts with rings.] Walk off 100 yards north along the cliff.

This is not the leftmost route on the cliff. There are at least two other routes to the left. This now has bolted anchors at the top.
