Climbing Area Index / Humphrey's Ledge / Blockade (5.8)
Directions:  Hike up the hill to the cliff and go left about 50'. When you get to the Shifty Eyes face, the climb is located on a slight buttress to the right of Shifty Eyes and Undertow. A large block on the ground that looks a little like the state of New Hampshire marks the start of the climb.
Description: The climb is characterized by steep face climbing that requires good balance and body position at the first two bolts.
    Pitch 1: Begin climbing the route at the shallow mossy groove on the right of the buttress. Good protection can be found in a short horizontal crack to the right of the groove. Climb the center of the buttress to a stance at an obvious horizontal crack (gear). Step left and up to the first two bolts. Above the two bolts move right to the third bolt and up a large block to its top. 50'

Gear: Small and medium cams and draws
Descent: Rappel from the 2-bolt anchor at the top of the buttress
History:  September 26,2011 - Joe Perez, Judy Perez, Al Hospers, Jeff Lea
