Description:

The first prominent crack you find left of the spring. Just left of the bolted route. Follow the clean crack at a dihedral to the top. You'll notice that a tree branch plays a bit of mischief at the top. Great trad climb. The top of this route now has bolted anchors just past the tree.

4 out of 5 stars Great route

Led this after seconding on the much harder uber Nutcracker (5.8) around the corner. Really enjoyed it. I'm 5.6 (168 cm) and found two cruxes... the initial layback that is conquered with high stemming feet and the last five feet struggling around a tree at the top. Absolutely worth doing. Protects well. Warms you up for Nutcracker.
