Description:

5.8. Approximately 30 or so feet to the right of Thumb Press is another right-facing corner/ramp system. Climb up the finger crack to a small corner, and follow the corner up to a small ledge 5' higher. Hop up to the next ledge, then climb the steep face to a large, spacious ledge. While not the top of the rock, it basically is the top of the climb. Anchors are gear, wrapping boulders/trees, or perhaps (at your own risk) clipping the single bolt that is up there on the ledge (and a little to the side). The black section 2/3 of the way up with the green lichen is referred to as "the Fairway". You can climb through that, but the rock is a bit rotten there. You are better staying to the right of it. There are many variations that you can play on around the "pure line" of this route
