Description:

For more information, support the park and buy the guidebook by Stewart Green. 9+ route. If you play chess you will love this route. You have to think ahead a few moves to set yourself up correctly. I cleaned a huge flake off theis thing up high so now there is a great side pull up there but the hard stuff was at the bottom so it didnt effect the rating at all. Really cool line!

3 out of 5 stars Fun but short

Great climb, but after the third bolt, the pitch almost completely levels out and you just walk to the remaining bolts and anchors. It is worth it though just for first part of the climb, very fun and quick.

3 out of 5 stars Thin Holds

Pretty small holds. Very similar to other climbs on the formation. Tried to flash the crag. This was getting near the end of the day when it was getting dark.

0 out of 5 stars Ascent Note

Good line, crux is right before the second bolt. A bit run-out at the top, but after the 3rd bolt the climbing is much easier.
