Description:

This route starts in the short right facing dihedral just to the left of Megster. Work your way up past the dihedral and then continue over to the arete on the left (easier) or straight up the wall (harder) using discontinuous cracks and then exit onto the arete left of the roof. From there it is a slippery low-angled incline up to the anchor tree. Short, pretty fun and challenging as you want to make it.

Descent Options:

There is webbing/hardware to Rap/lower off the large tree at the top. Bring your own webbing as the stuff already up there may be old and/or chewed up.

3 out of 5 stars Would be great for a new trad leader.

The route has lots of stances and eats gear. Rap from a tree.

2 out of 5 stars Didn't know the name of this climb...

But it looked to be fun. Found it to be pretty enjoyable and rock is clean. We replaced a piece of the webbing at the anchor, but the older piece will need replacing pretty soon. We set up a top rope on it after climbing Megster.
