Description:

Definitely harder for short people. "Start below a right facing 'wedge' chimney. Scramble up onto a small blocky stance, then make a few reachy moves up and right over the bulge. Easier moves lead to the top." (From VA, WV, and MD guidebook by Eric Hörst)

3 out of 5 stars nice climb

I loved the part where you have to step out to the right and go up. Not hard but a little eye opener.
