Description:

Two star route! Long, layback and a small roof for the crux. Good top-out. Good pro for top anchor to belay second. This is a classic for the area!

Descent Options:

Walk off back to the south end. Please don't wrap the cedar tree, rap off and then pull your rope... These are ancient cedars found in few places in the world, the ones at the edge are many hundreds of years old! They are VERY important trees to the ecolo

4 out of 5 stars .

Sustained and fun! The hardest part is definitely getting off the ground. My first outdoor 5.9, and what a choice. There's even a small finger crack if you look for it.

4 out of 5 stars nice clean line

best line on the crag easily, I used the #'s 4,5,&6 C4's as most of the lower portion is offwidth, set a #5 while doing a 'look ma no hands' knee jamb. excellent pro and opportunity for stances. my first trad lead with the wonderful Krista belaying me, she was very good, felt very comfortable.
