Description:

Slabby 5.9 crystal pinching climb about 20 feet left of Easy Stuff. 4 bolts plus the anchor, crux is at 3rd bolt. Anchor at top is this funky aircraft cable rigged around a tree on the ledge; it's fine to rappell off.

This is not a 5.9. Everyone agrees.

3 out of 5 stars appealing face

Following the bolts makes the climb a solid 5.10 (but still fun!). Tread slightly right of the first 3 bolts for 5.9 climbing.
