Description:

Start at No.19 and climb the left or right crack to a small roof. Go left and up until you are on the ledge. Congrats - you've just finished the climb and there is no way to get to the top unless you are cool with tradding hard 5.10. Oh yeah, a raccoon happens to live in the offwidth crack above and to the left of the ledge. He will growl at you and make you shit your pants (if you are leading). Thanks guidebook! Or travers to the left about 20-30 feet and then go up this section could be about 5.5

2 out of 5 stars Skip it

Takes longer to set it up on TR than the climb itself. Decent for a very new climber with a few options to make multiple climbs a bit more interesting, but it's still short since it ends on the ledge.

Pretty easy. Top-roped it, which let us play above the ledge. That part is way more fun than the route itself

It ends at the ledge halfway up with no rap station. Poo.
