Climb up the initial small corner of A Quarter and a Half then step right into the corner proper of this unknown 8. The corner will lead up to a set of anchors on the right hand side. The climbing is fun. Too bad some of the rock is loose. Beware of dropping mostly small stones on your belayer.


Large left facing corner in the Road Area #3.


Standard rack. Bolted anchor.

This climb is great. If the rock wasn't dirty and loose in a few places, I would easily give it three stars. The climbing is fun and engaging, and for the most part well-protected. Bump a #4 through the crux. The climbing isn't too difficult, but the rock is/was very dirty. Like mentioned above, the belayer should watch for small rocks falling constantly.
