Great trad lead! A smaller, easier, mirror image of Corona Corner. Offwidth to tight hands in a right facing corner. No particular crux, just sustained crack jamming. Excellent protection, very good rock. The Ripples on the face right of the crack can be top roped from the anchors and await a free ascent, I'm guessing 11/12ish. Get after it!


Located at 45.80786,-108.694089. Best approached from the top. at the bottom all land to the west is privately owned, to the east is city park.


#5 to #1 camalots, double up on 2's. Good anchors at top though scary to approach, consider a belay.
