Directions:  Right as you come up the approach trail, it will be in front of you and slightly to the left
Description: A nice route with varied climbing and fun holds. There is a TR variation that goes around the often wet crux by heading up the ramp to the right after the flake and then rejoins near the top. This may get a couple bolts in the future to make it leadable.
    Pitch 1: From the flat starting stone, climb up on to the ledge and work your way up a shallow corner, stemming and laybacking, clipping a couple bolts to your left. Place a cam under the flake above and hike up a few easy moves on fun rounded flakes to reach a bolt protected steep section of pockets (crux), to gain a nice finger crack in a corner. Follow this up, then clip a bolt and step up to the left to get to the final corner and the anchors. 80'

Gear: Draws and a small rack of nuts and cams up to #2 Camalot. There is a two bolt anchor at the top. Bring a few shoulder length slings.
Descent: rap the route
History:  Mark Sprague
