Description:

An enjoyable, varied climb on good but very mossy rock. This route is on the High Peaks Trail just off the first sharp right turn. Climb the mossy waterchute left of the trail to a ledge on your left. From the right side of the ledge, climb up a short face protected by a decaying bolt on your far left to another ledge with an oak tree. You can belay from this tree to help decrease rope drag. Above you is a large, wedged boulder that forms a left and right facing corner. You can choose to climb the original route and crux, up the steep, right facing corner past 3 rusted out bolts or climb the slightly overhanging left facing corner that you can protect with cams. This will take you to another ledge where the route joins with the routes Heffalump, 5.6 and Flip A Coin Chimney, 5.6.

Descent Options:

Scramble up to the right to get onto the Discovery Wall Trail.
