Description 

I'm posting this climb because the top half is a great 2" hand crack that goes at 5.6 It is rare to find a beginner climb like this that is low angle down in the river canyon. So if Swan Slab is too crowded in the early spring, you just don't want to go to Knob Hill, or the cliff up and left of Little Wing is just too long of a walk, come and do this line.

Climb an unattractive, chocky, left facing corner to a nice flat ledge. Continue up left around a tree in the slammer hand crack. The top slabs out but the crack continues.

Location 

This route is the last climb on the right side of the cliff. Pass Chicken Pie, walk around a large boulder, and pass a small gully which is actually the dirty Chimney for Two. Tail End begins up a chocky left facing corner.

Protection 

Single set of friends to #3. Extra #2 - #2.5 pieces. Slings.

Natural anchor on top. Walk off to the right.

Try to pass underneath the tree to avoid rope drag if you can.
