Unknown, climbing by 9y/o Sheighlah


This climb is just left of Practice Session and and right of the Brain. It is a not so obvious fissure\finger crack that is not listed in the Guide book.

Finger lock and face climb your way to the top. Can walk off the cliff from the top or set up a TR anchor (Can't remember if it is gear or small trees), lower and belay the second.


About 20 feet left of Practice Session


Standard Trad Rack (Small - Mid Range Cams)

Currently listed as a 5.7, my limited experience (so take this for what it's worth) tells me it's harder than that- at least a 5.8, more likely a 5.9. Granted I don't have a lot of crack experience, but the holds don't amount to much- especially at the beginning. About 10' off the ground it gets better, and towards the top it does get dirty.
