Description:

Start just right of 'Harry's Route.' The start is polished and missing holds but still easily doable. Work your way up to a moderate sized ledge, then layback a sweet crack to the top. It is possible to skip the start by chimneying up on the right and traversing to the ledge. 5.9 in the guide book, but with the proper start it needs retro-grading

4 out of 5 stars Schooch and Cleo ascent

No top anchors but easy to top rope. Climbing the crack is fun.

THis route is very polished but was enjoyable. Completed first try, The upper section is a very nice layback. The crux would have to be the polished rock .
