Description 

Move up to a low awkward stance on a shallow ledge ("the nose" - if you don't see it, follow the sneeze line upwind from your belayer). Follow a shallow crack system up to a tree at the top of this short wall.


Location 

Downstream side of "buttress five".


Protection 

Good for the area. Smallish chocks and cams. The first pro is a small crack deep inside the nose; the first ~good~ pro is in the crack system higher up. Sling a tree up top.
