Description 

This route is somewhat of a mixed bag. It starts easy and a little junky, has solid rock through a steep, airy, and fun bulge to a ledge, and then goes up a pretty crappy chimney. At the ledge after the bulge, there is a two-bolt anchor where an optional belay could be made. I would recommend finishing the route there as the chimney above is not worth the effort. If you decide to do the whole route, climb the chimney to the large tree with rappel slings.

Location 

This route is about ten feet to the right of Stepping Stones. See that route for directions. There are several small trees in the first ten to fifteen feet of the route.

The descent is two single-rope rappels (from a tree and then a bolted anchor) with a 60m rope.

Protection 

Standard rack.
