Description:

Interesting finger cracks on small downstream face. Small smooth foot jibs on adjacent face. (ropeburn, June 10 2003) The 5.10c version of this - according to the VA, WV, and MD guidebook by Eric Hörst - is to "climb the right-facing corner using only handholds on the left face, while limiting your feet only to holds on the right face of the corner."

challenging due to the slippery nature of the bottom 4 feet of any Carderock route

a great warm up for butterfly, or merves nerves, flutterby is also a really nice intro to dihedreal climbing. Some funky positioning is possible.
