The right of two climbs just below the railing at the top. Steep, but with positive hands to give the relatively low rating.


Aliens are very helpful. Nothing above #3 camalot. #.5-3 camalots cam be used for an anchor.

I thought the climb was fun overall and easy to get to. My guess is the climb to the top was aroung 40-50 feet high, I'd say up to around 20 feet is the problem then after is more like 5.4 climbing to reach the railing.

This is a stiff 5.6 that is tricky to protect through the cruxy start. Small TCU's place nicely here. Once you pull the right-facing flake it eases to low 5th along a ramp to the top.

I agree with Jason in that this seems stout for a 5.6. Protection is a bit tricky to arrange down low.
