Description 

This is a fun climb. The crux is reaching the good hold left of the overlap.

Location 

This is the 3rd route from the left of the broken, crap-filled corner.

Protection 

Bolts. The anchors are off to the right of the tree.

Fun route. Worth doing if you're in the area.

Nice intro to the climbing and rock in the area. Some fun moves...especially the reach up left around the overlap. The hold is nice but it is fairly blind to start with. Bolts are well placed. Too bad this climb isn't longer. Anchors are a little hidden off to the left of the tree and detached red block.

The anchors are actually to the right of the tree, but they're visible from the ground anyway.

Yeah. My bad, Ben. The anchors are off to the right of the tree.
