Directions:  This climb starts at a medium sized oak tree in front of a right facing corner formed by a stacked block on the left and a featured looking white quartz dike in the center.
Description: Traversing from right to left below the face of the buttress this is the first climb you will come to.
    Pitch 1: Climb 10' to the top of the block under a small spruce tree. Step up and right to a big ledge and you are “out of the forest”.
