Description:

A classic! enuf said :D perfect for the begining leader/follower. I have described this climb many times as a "300' ladder" / To the right of Ending Crack, start below a prominent tree. There are decent rap anchors for at this tree. Climb the second pitch of 5.5 climbing past numerous trees to a 3 bolt belay (shared with the belay at the top of the last pitch of Ending Crack). General consensus I've (climballnight) heard is that the start over the years has become more like 5.6. Hard to tell, if you know what I mean.

4 out of 5 stars Half Way Up

Only went to the first tree due to time constraints. Fun climb. I will definately be going all the way up in the near future.
