1st pitch: work up dihedral (5.4) Pitch 2: Work up Lieback/Hand crack to a wider section to a good belay ledge with trees. Pitch 3: Lieback up a thin crack up a right facing dihedral (5.9-) to a hand traverse that moves out left (5.9) and gains a ledge. Scramble 3rd class out left to the top of the crag and make 3 rappels down coke bottle.

4 out of 5 stars First two only

Good liebacking and crack climbing, ran out of time to hit the final pitch which looked slick and committing. You can rap down from the top of pitch two with a 60m.
