Description:

Fun crack climb that transitions to chimney moves 2/3 of the way up. Good jamming technique is key to get over the two slightly overhung sections. Some of the rock is loose. The climb is located at the north side of the Discovery Wall right at the intersection with the the trail back to the parking lot. It's shaded all day. Route can be top roped.

Descent Options:

Rappel down off bolts. A walk off is also possible.

4 out of 5 stars -

some loose rock in the crack, i wouldn't do it again unless it was a weekday. it's directly over a hiking trail, and it seems like poor form to climb over hikers. otherwise, it's a great climb!

4 out of 5 stars Good variety of moves

Fun climbing that gets lots of shade and plenty of tourist traffic. Can be top roped, but make sure to redirect if you don't want to take a swing.
