Description 

I found some chalk and cleaned boulders in this area, but I don't know how they missed this gem! It was completely covered in lichen when I found it and quite unclimbable. After a bunch of cleaning it turned into a great line.

Start standing with your hands on either side. Then desperately muscle your way up the arete.

A lower start is probably possible and much harder.


Location 

Walk up the trail until you get to a 12 foot, blank, overhanging boulder on the right. Turn left off the trail and look for the obvious overhang/nose.
