Start on two small crimps below overhang and a heel out right. Move to lip of overhang and go left along lip. Find a way to move to adjacent sidepulls around corner and pull the lip on slopers. Big ledge/ block out left of crack is off.

3 out of 5 stars Worth a few throws but over all not exciting

Overall, slightly harder than blue crab, but not really. The moss/lichen makes it difficult to climb while conforming to leave no trace principles, but is completely doable. Watch out for the pointed log behind you, best to have a spotter and wrap it up with a shirt or stuff a backpack over it.
